Dan is focused on building a strong conceptual basis for all his work and believes that the most effective architectural strategies for addressing client needs integrate all building systems into a  cohesive finished solution.  Along with practicing architecture, he also investigates conceptual ideas through photography, as well as designing and building furniture, and has participated in numerous design competitions and exhibitions in each.  He is a proponent of urban development, and his academic studies, as well as professional work, focus on growing and revitalizing urban areas, including projects in the cities of Detroit and Grand Rapids.  To further satisfy his interest in the role of architecture in urban development, Dan enjoys traveling to experience cities all over the country and around the world.
