Steve began his design career in Minnesota about the same time that personal computers started showing up on desks in architectural offices (yes, that was a long time ago ...). This turned out to be a good thing because he discovered an affinity for the burgeoning technology wave and rode it to a practice management role at a large St. Paul firm, where he stayed for almost 20 years. His interest in practice development led him to a mid-career MBA, primarily to satisfy his fascination with organizational strategy and behavior, which is a curiosity that continues to this day. A later career change led him to the Washington, D.C. area, and eventually to HDR. He and his family love the East Coast, staying connected to their Midwestern roots through a continual parade of friends and family looking for a place to stay while visiting our nation’s capital.
