Kurt was born and raised in Glenwood Springs, CO and has been working in the industry since 2003. Upon acquiring his Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Design (with an emphasis in Architecture) from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2005 he worked for several years in high end hospitality/resort architecture until 2010. Seeking a higher knowledge of the built environment and an ability to work with his hands, Kurt spent 4 years from 2011 to 2015 as a carpenter building homes in the Roaring Fork Valley which forever changed his view of Architecture and his approach to design. Kurt has been primarily focused on custom residential homes since 2015 working in various high architecture firms prior to branching out and co-founding Focal Studio in 2021. In his spare time outside the studio Kurt can usually be found with his wife and daughter on their whitewater raft, on the edge of a river with his fishing rod, or cutting turns on his ski’s. Kurt is always searching for the next adventure and opportunity to live life to the fullest.
