Not only did Steve relocate to join the Collective, he recently married his wife, Heather, a resident of Santa Barbara. Together they enjoy being creative and experiencing their new life together.  When not working, Steve is busy raising three daughters which obviously includes a lot of shopping.

After owning his own practice in Missouri for over ten years Steve relocated to Santa Barbara to join the Cearnal Collective. Steve’s background includes an extensive knowledge of all phases of construction obtained while working for his family owned contracting business in Kansas City, Missouri.  This experience has assisted Steve in design and administration throughout his architectural practice.

Steve received his Bachelor of Science degree in Envirnomental Design from the University of Missouri, Columbia in 1994.  His education and work experience enabled him a successful practice focusing on commercial and residential projects.  His commercial work consisted of medical buildings, office buildings, elementary, and secondary education projects. 

Steve was very active in his previous community having served on the Historic Preservations Commission, and other local organizations and volunteer groups. He’s thrilled to do the same here in Santa Barbara and make this community his home.
