Bio:

My plan was to be an artist; a sculptor to be exact. With three small kids at my side, I completed my BFA only to decide that I should get my MArch. I worked for a large arch & engineering firm until I passed my registration exam and then promptly started my own firm with a friend a colleague. For 15 years, our firm worked to transform the city of Dayton. In addition to the architecture firm we had a development company and a construction company. In 2009 I became full time faculty at Miami U. 

How did you first learn about architecture and when did you decide that built environment profession was an area of interest for you?

I grew up in Florida and my father’s plumbing shop was located next to “the orange”, a florida roadside attraction shaped like a giant orange. I was fascinated with that building and its use to promote the local citrus industry and tourism.

What do you do?

I am an Associate Professor Miami University (since 2009) and maintain a small architecture practice. I teach studio, a landscape history theory course and a Passive House certification course, allowing students to become Certified PH Consultants 

What excites you in the work you do?

I am inspired by my students who continue to amaze me and educate me. I am motivated to cultivate and train them as leaders in high performance design. They are the ones who will bear the burden of climate change and we need to prepare them.

What is your proudest professional accomplishment or achievement?

For 15 years I was a partner in the firm Rogero Buckman Architects in Dayton Ohio. The majority of our work was in downtown Dayton and made a huge impact in the revitalization of the urban area. I am also proud to have been the dept chair at Miami University.
