“Architecture is the synthesis of art and science. An architect must use his knowledge of the building sciences to provide aesthetically pleasing, cost effective solutions that satisfy the client’s program, are responsive to the environment, and withstand the test of time.”

Principal

Before joining Green, Stephen served honorably for 8 years in the United States Marine Corps, and is a Veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom II-2. Since 1994 he has been an active member of the Illinois Association of School Business Officials (IASBO), and in 2013 was elected to serve as the Chair for the IASBO Service Associate Advisory Committee (SAAC).

When not working, you will most likely find him outdoors with his two young kids, fishing, hiking, camping or he’s somewhere on or under the water.

“Helping our clients provide learning environments to students, where they can feel safe and secure no matter what else is going on around them, is one of the most rewarding things we can do in schools.  This allows them to learn at a high level, open up their minds, and develop the skills needed to become life long learners.”

“As an architect specializing in school design, nothing is more thrilling than taking an idea or a mental image and seeing it grow from initial sketches into a physical educational environment for young aspiring minds to learn and be prepared for their future.”
