My Father was a carpenter in NWI 50 miles SE of Chicago. As a teenager, my summers were often spent working along-side him. That greatly influenced my decision to take four years of architectural design and CAD. I went back to school for cardiovascular technology and emergency technician training. After becoming a husband and father, I lost my appetite for the emergency room and specialized in business development. Designed by NT combines creativity, construction and my love of architecture. I believe the most important requirement of architectural design is; communication and connection with future homeowners. Designing homes that are not only highly functional but an extension of my client's values, lifestyle and personality is my ultimate goal. Everything starts with a conversation.
