Welcome to the Dallas Architect blog. I am an architect and interior designer wearing the hats of marketeer, business development guru, social media maven, and networking ninja. It takes a lot of balancing and I’m learning as I go.

My plan for this blog is to share ideas and information about architecture and interior design. More importantly, how they relate to your life and mine on a daily basis. Anything from kitchen design and outdoor living to project planning tips and green materials is fair game. I guess I better warn you that you’ll also see posts about networking, marketing, social media, and local events in the Dallas, Texas area.

The Dallas Architect blog is an extension of The Architecture Happy Hour networking group and podcast, which are hosted by my firm, HPD Architecture. My partners Larry Paschall, AIA and Holly Hall, AIA and I are committed to “thinking outside the box” in how we approach our business.

One way we are doing that is by reaching out to our clients, consultants, referral partners, and fellow architects and designers. Rather than turning inward and battening down the hatches to weather this economic storm, we decided to build our network and create opportunities for others to do the same. We’re operating on the principle of “The more you give, the more you’ll get.” So far it’s working.

Well, that’s the five-cent tour of my new home in the Blogosphere. I look forward to exploring these topics with you and sharing what I’ve learned about marketing our architecture firm.
