“Architecture is the result of a process whereby words and images evolve into a designed solution that reflects its people, culture, environment and brand. In a transportation environment, it represents an evolving time continuum.”


About Rick

At DFW International Airport, Rick sat and watched people as they navigated their way through the airport. He witnessed a seasoned traveler whisking through security, a woman and child grabbing a meal on the go and a teenager plugging into the Wi-Fi stations. “I was fascinated by the way each person processed, oriented and interacted with the environment,” he revealed. “How did they go about looking for signage? How did they react to the security checkpoint process? Did it elevate their stress level?” According to Rick, helping people is the reason he focuses on aviation architecture. “I want people to have the best experience possible from curbside until the moment they board their plane. It’s equally important to me that the client as well as the entire design and construction team have an extraordinary experience working together. When personalities blend, creative and collaborative solutions transpire.” With more than 30 years of experience, Rick’s strong aviation background includes 14 years of design and management leadership at DFW International Airport, where his projects ranged from airport studies to modifications at Terminal E to the design of International Terminal D.
