Prior to co-founding Oudens Ello Architecture in 2007, he was a Senior Associate and Vice President with Machado Silvetti. During his twelve years there, he was project director and lead designer for a range of award-winning institutional, academic, and cultural projects, including the Getty Villa, the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, The Addison Gallery of American Art, the Mint Museum of Art and Mystic Seaport.
