“Respect the process and make it as good as it can be.”
Scott’s path into the world of architecture began with travel. Inspired by what he saw in Europe and Asia, he moved to Alaska and built his own home. When the project was finished, he went to the University of Oregon and earned his Master’s in Architecture. A thoughtful designer with a craftsman’s eye for detail, he’s still passionate about the hands-on process of design and construction.
Scott says that architecture is not merely about the finished structure. He finds passion in the details, ensuring everything is designed and executed at the highest level of attention to meets the goals of the client. He prioritizes building rapport, discovering what the client is looking for, and building in the local context.
Outside the office (and his own building projects), Scott enjoys exploring the great Alaskan outdoors on skis or in a kayak.

In designing the Mining and Petroleum Training Service (MAPTS) project at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Scott enjoyed finding ways to include elements of the mining, oil, and gas industries into the design.
There’s no school like the old school. Scott always has a pencil and eraser handy to capture ideas, plans, and possibilities. He says it’s the best way to process thoughts and engage creatively.
The MCG Explore Design team takes a lot of pride in getting involved in the community. Scott’s favorite outreach work is for the Special Olympics, which he has supported in different ways over the years.
