“This is the way I found Frank Lloyd Wright to be, during the eight years I knew him. Mr. Wright’s views at any given moment were direct and disarmingly simple. Over a period of time, as these expressions remained valid, they became multi-dimensional eventually creating a kaleidoscopic whole; brilliant, exciting and unpredictable. My work which was in the beginning rooted in the philosophy of Frank Lloyd Wright, the architect, developed into a style of my own. I did architectural work in Arizona, California, Virginia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Egypt.”

“Then, I developed a conviction that for me to be a complete architect, I needed to posses a working knowledge of structural engineering. I studied engineering and became a licensed structural engineer. I did engineering for some of Frank Lloyd Wright’s projects built after his death such as the first Christian Church in Phoenix, Arizona, and the Feldman (originally the Wall) residence in Berkeley, California. I also did engineering on some of John Lautner’s buildings such as the Elrod Residence in Palm Springs, California and the Steven’s residence in Malibu. This is of course in addition to the engineering I did and still do on my own work.”
