Hi I’m Ralph.

I am an architect. I have been designing buildings for almost twenty years. I love architecture, especially places built to protect children’s laughter. Over my career I have been trying to build lightly, tiptoeing on the earth but my footprints have been very heavy. I try to design places that breath and grow with the world around them.

I am a writer. In the early morning hours, or sometimes late at night I string together words and commit them to paper or screen. I’ve been doing this almost as long as I have been designing buildings. I like to ask questions on paper and play with the potential answers. Earlier in my career I focused on writing non-fiction about the what the built environment is and was. Lately I have been writing more speculative fiction about what our world might become. I am looking forward to the day where I can share the abundant links to my published novel and short stories. Until then you are going to have to trust me when I say that the day is coming soon.

I am a father, a husband, a son, a brother. Living here in the Garden State, I am lucky to be surrounded by a family that I love and cherish. My cats Roxie, and Mr. Bear are particularly supportive of my writing. My wife and kids are less impressed, but continue to be root me on.

Thanks for visiting. Take a look around.
