In his younger years, Roger dreamed of being an astronaut, or a marine biologist. But once in high school enjoyed history, art and drafting classes and knew that an architecture degree was in his future. He is a senior project manager in the Health studio and brings a wealth of healthcare expertise and knowledge essential for all projects, large and small, complex and straightforward.

With over four decades of experience, Roger has proven expertise in all design phases, from Programming/Planning through Construction Administration. He has served in various capacities, including director, designer, owner’s representative, project manager, and project architect. His experience spans many project types, including new construction, renovations, additions, and historical restorations.

His notable healthcare design experience includes Rocky Mountain Regional VA Hospital in Denver, Parkview Outpatient Surgery Center, and Montrose Regional Health Ambulatory Care Center.  He has also worked on multiple K-12 schools up and down the front range,  and also considers Traders Point Church and Lakeview Church in Indianapolis as some of his more memorable projects.

Rogers favorite non-work hobbies include long hikes with his wife and dog, woodworking, snow skiing, water skiing, and bicycling. He has recently traveled to Tahiti, London, Rome, and Florence, and looks forward to visiting Greece and France in the near future.

Get to know Roger

What is an interesting fact not many people know about you?

I was born in Wales, my father was English and my mother was Welsh, and my family history can be traced back to 1066 AD when William the Conqueror invaded England.

Who is your biggest hero and why?

Edward Mazria. During college he published “The Passive Solar Energy Book” and addressed environmental concerns and global warming decades before others got on board. Mazria created the 2030 Challenge to reduce building greenhouse gas emissions and without his dedication it is concerning to think where we would be at this point.

What is your favorite part of your job?

Solving problems. Both during design and construction.

What is your advice to young professionals in your field?

Architecture is Timeless! There is always something to learn from past projects.  Travel as much as you possibly can and visit historic cultures, cities and architecture throughout the world for continued inspiration.
