It all started when I was a kid setting up a drafting table in the living room of our southern California home.  My Mom was on board feeding my design passion with architectural tours around our hometown and on family vacations.  From a first place award in the San Diego county high school architecture design competition, to technical school in Phoenix, Arizona along to a Bachelor of Science and Masters degree in architecture from The Catholic University of America in DC, my life has always revolved around architecture and design.  Now living and working at the DC waterfront I collaborate with clients, helping them create homes and interiors that perfectly reflect their lives and neighborhoods.

After more than fifteen years at some of the premier custom residential architectural firms in the DC area I've achieved a life long dream of starting Benton Architecture.  With several award winning and published projects in my portfolio, along with featured articles in the Washingtonian Magazine, The Washington Post, Home & Design Magazine and Houzz.com I bring a lifetime of experience and knowledge to unique projects large and small.  From kitchen and bathroom renovations to new homes and most everything in between. I offer complete design support for clients looking to create thoughtful and beautiful spaces.

Licensed in DC, Virginia,  Maryland and Connecticut I have worked with clients throughout the area, from neighbors in Georgetown to Gibson Island and Purcellville, Virginia.  Whether contemporary or traditional, the common line with all my clients is the desire to create classic and beautifully detailed homes that reflect their unique personalities.
