defined as the point of no return, relevant in my case when I dropped out of graduate studies at the Architectural Association of London to "work with my hands and make things", in the mid-90's. I moved back to Seattle and worked for a group of artists and sculptors in South Park, a neighborhood south of Seattle.
I founded rubicon Design in 1998 in an alley behind Dave Page Cobbler in Fremont. In 2001 I was fortunate enough to meet Steve Dukich, of Mud Honey fame, who improved our offering with his master craftsmanship and obsessive compulsive attention to detail. From there the future wrote itself, we loved working together and loved our product. Clients included: City of Seattle, Copernican Design Build, Gates Foundation, Gene Juarez Salons, Gordon Walker, JAS Design Build, Starbucks Coffee, Miller|Hull, Nitche/Stagen, Olsen Sundberg Architects, Peter Miller Bookstore, Suyama Architects, Temple de Hirsch and The University of Washington.
After 10 years Steve wanted to move to Hawaii and I had some different ideas I wanted to pursue. Below are some selected projects.
