Originally from South Florida, Steve received his Master of Architecture degree from Tulane University in 1984, and worked with Perez Associates in New Orleans before relocating to Los Angeles, where he would join KAA Design Group in 1988.  

Steve approaches architectural design with passion, patience and inter-disciplinary rigor. As the firm’s Design Coordinator, his design expertise and familiarity with KAA’s 25-year history of custom residential projects make him uniquely suited for direct involvement in all of the firm’s work, overseeing design and construction documentation on a diverse portfolio of projects.

Steve believes that the successful realization of quality architecture depends on both clear communication of the design concept, and a comprehensive understanding of the construction process.  Steve works collaboratively with the project teams to ensure that the project’s original design vision is realized in every nuance.  In this role, Steve endeavors to leverage current technology while ensuring the highest standards of quality control on all projects.

Steve's passion for design in every aspect of human endeavor, from the fine arts to the culinary arts, and his keen appreciation for gracious living influence all that he touches.

About Us

Our design philosophy is predicated on deep, meaningful connections between the house and the land. Southern California is blessed with a nurturing environment that provides extraordinary opportunities for true indoor-outdoor living. The homes we design fulfill that promise with beauty and joy.


Our Thinking

The Mediterranean in Southern California

Architecture inspired by great traditions of the Mediterranean region has a long, rich history in California. The fruits of this long lineage flavor the character of our cities and dot the surrounding hillsides. At KAA Design, we have often found the Mediterranean architectures to be a perfect fit for our clients wishing to build here.
