Our staff members are all committed students of the accumulated wisdom of history as it is expressed in traditional architecture and urban design. Our passion for building strong communities starts here in our studio, among our friends and colleagues.
Craig has over 20 years of experience in all areas of architectural practice, ranging from design, document production, planning, code review, energy code compliance and project management. Before joining Union Studio in 2008, Craig spent 11 years as a Project Manager with a full service architectural firm in Smithfield, Rhode Island and 10 years as a designer with a civil engineering and architectural firm in Pawtucket, Rhode Island where he gained overall experience in a wide range of project types, including residential, educational, medical, corporate office and manufacturing. Craig’s disciplined work ethic helps drive Union Studio’s projects forward and makes him an invaluable member of our team. He received an Associate of Science Degree in Architectural Engineering from New England Institute of Technology.
Hometown: Cumberland, Rhode Island
Philosophical idol: Ayn Rand, for her objectivism: “People create their own questions because they are afraid to look straight. All you have to do is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don’t sit looking at it – walk.”
Non-Philosophical idol: George Carlin, for his optimism and his ability to make cynicism funny. He communicated well and comically about difficult topics, treading on ground most would fear to meander.
Guilty Pleasure: Eating a “cheat meal” on Saturday evening. It is a nice mental break after being continually inundated with statements like, “Oh come on, live a little.”
On a Sunday afternoon you will likely find me: At the gym, working in my yard, or continually renovating my house.
Words to the wise: Success comes before work only in the dictionary; experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes; better to do something perfectly than to do nothing flawlessly.
