HK Architects Headshots

Clif finds inspiration and renewal in the natural world, whether he is trail running, camping, gardening, or exploring cave formations. His deep appreciation for patterns in nature led him to become an architect. He has been with HK Architects since 2000 and became a principal in 2012.

In his current role, Clif carefully matches complex projects with the expertise of his colleagues, breaking them into discrete tasks and pairing each component with the right team member. He also reviews design plans to ensure they meet HK's exacting standards and comply with all relevant building codes.

Clif graduated with Highest Honors from Georgia Tech and complemented this technical foundation by studying Urban Form and Theatrical Set Design at L'Ecole d'Architecture de Paris - La Villette. Earlier in his career, he managed dozens of collaborative workspace renovations on the West Coast before shifting his focus to historic renovations in Upstate New York. He joined the HK team in 2000 after relocating to Chattanooga. An avid sketcher, Clif is always looking for opportunities to pick up pen and paper to capture his latest inspiration.
