Clif has worked with HK Architects since 2000 and has been a principal since 2012. He enjoys coming to work each day and solving problems for HK’s clients. His background shows his devotion to his craft: He received Highest Honors from Georgia Tech and studied Urban Form and Theatrical Set Design at L’Ecole d’Architecture de Paris – La Villette. Upon graduation he relocated to the West Coast and managed several dozen office renovations for dot com companies during the tech boom of the late 1990’s. Additionally he spent three years restoring historic properties in Upstate New York. Clif is a matchmaker: he breaks projects into tasks and pairs those tasks with the HK colleagues who will perform them best. He himself likes measuring existing buildings and dealing with any of the complex construction detailing tasks. Clif reviews designs to ensure they meet national codes and standards, and also the standards of HK. He also has an eye for design and takes the opportunity to pick up pen and pencil every now and again.
