Joe began his construction management career in Chicago, after graduating from John Carroll University, in the early 90’s. He skillfully converted run-down duplexes back to their former glory of single-family homes in popular neighborhoods such as Lincoln Park and Wrigleyville. It was during these initial years that Joe developed a passion for preserving the style and integrity of older homes ensuring that they be remodeled consistent with the period in which they were originally built.
Joe has since worked diligently to remodel spaces that blend new and old, and modern and traditional styles within all budgets. Joe holds a certification as a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) and also is highly educated in Eco-Friendly home building and renovations. He is also a “Certified Lead Renovator” with the State of Oregon.
I grew up building anything I could wrap my mind, and the scotch tape, around. The first house I every built was for the tooth fairy. From then on I knew in some way shape or form I would be a builder.
I received a professional degree in Architecture with a minor in Interior Architecture from the University of Oregon in 1999. Since then I have worked for years with well renowned builders such as Green Gables and Hammer and Hand.
During those years I could not keep my hands off the design side of things and in conjunction with construction I created my own design company called Circulation.
From the first discussion, with Joe, of creating Form and Function there was never a doubt in our minds that we could combine our decades of experience and create a construction company that produces a product and an experience that we, our designers, and especially our clients will smile at and enjoy .
