Expertise / Involvements

Self-Directed Projects on Behalf of LIGHT (2000-2007):
LIGHT, Inc. is a design practice that I founded in Washington, DC for developing communities. We have designed and built 3 churches/community centers in Latin America, and phase 1 of a medical clinic in West Africa. The designs of the buildings employ easy-to-maintain passive sustainable technologies and low-tech building materials and methods for impoverished communities.
