He serves as a project architect and project manager in LS3P’s Capitol Studio, and provides technical CAD/BIM production and digital visualization assistance office wide. Clint works closely with senior project managers and other members of the design team through all phases of the design process, from preliminary design though complete construction documentation and administration. After studying history and political science as an undergraduate, Clint returned to school to study architecture with the hope that an interdisciplinary background would manifest as meaningful contributions to the practice of architecture. In his years of practice, he gained a knowledge and appreciation of sustainable design and digital design and manufacturing processes, and he is eager to see this knowledge implemented into the design process.
