Team

Josh’s passion for architecture and attention to detail guide the way to create better buildings and spaces. Prior practice in construction, as well as a “hands on” approach to design have given him an appreciation for the design and construction process. He enjoys managing projects of various scales and complexity and likes working with owners and contractors to solve problems with simple solutions.

Josh has been practicing architecture for 10 years. He joined SVPA in 2008 and became a stockholder in the company in 2016. Outside of work, he is a husband and father of four and is continually in the middle of a home construction project.
