Kenneth Stone, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, CID

Since my youth, I have always enjoyed drawing and building models, so being an architect is a natural fit. My favorite part of a project is sketching ideas to visualize a client’s ideas and exploring the possibilities. Leading a project team with a variety of personalities is a rewarding process for me, particularly mentoring younger architects. In my free time, I enjoy biking, hiking and travel…. Particularly to beaches or mountains.
