Principal, Director of Design
Dallas, Texas USA
Architecture is something that’s always come natural to Chuck — and that he’s continued to take great pride in. Over his four decades in the industry, the projects he’s been most proud of are those whose mission, or location, is close to his heart: Parkland Hospital, Sacramento International Airport, and Dallas Love Field — the latter being his hometown airport. It’s all about “making places where people thrive and do their best work, places that put the excitement back into air travel, places for young folks to discover the world, and finally, places where people heal and recover,” Chuck says.
Involved in every market sector — from healthcare to office to aviation — Chuck reinforces our design principles and brand pillars across industries, while fostering relationships with our clients. He has received more than 40 awards during his four decades in the industry — no doubt, a result of the consideration he gives to each project and the people it will impact most. “I look at every design from the viewpoint of the user and ask simple questions that will make the experience both memorable and easy to comprehend,” says Chuck.
His commitment to his field has extended into his civic life as well. Chuck has served on the advisory council for the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture since 2014 and was appointed to the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows, in 2015. An advocate for public art and architecture, he has been involved with the Dallas Architecture Forum, The Dallas Business Council for the Arts, The Community Arts Center of Dallas, and The Texas Fine Arts Association.
The same sense of joy and enthusiasm that informs Chuck’s work also guides him in his personal life. In addition to his love of art, sculpture, and music, Chuck is passionate about and enjoys spending time with his children, grandchildren, and wife.
