Born and raised in Calgary, Canada, Miles has practiced architecture for over 20 years, developing expertise in the design, documentation and delivery of sustainable building projects primarily in the Pacific Northwest. His experience includes the full range of architectural service, from initial programming and conceptual design work to large-scale, complex projects for both public and private clients.
With a degree in Environmental Design from the University of Manitoba, Canada, and a Master of Architecture from the University of Oregon, Miles’ education and years of practice have been guided by sustainable design and building principles. Direct project involvement and responsibility from start to finish throughout Miles’ career affords him the necessary experience to address the wide array of opportunities and challenges in all aspects of the work.
Miles is a registered Architect in the state of Oregon, an active member in the AIA, and a consistent volunteer in the Portland community.
