Garner is a native Washingtonian, having lived and practiced architecture on both sides of the Cascade Mountains. A graduate of Washington State University, his professional passions include educational and civic design, low-income housing, and historic preservation, believing “the most sustainable building is the one already built”.  Every project should have one goal: to make better the lives of the building’s users, its community, and the planet as a whole.

Whether it be on the water sailing, on the trail hiking or on the slopes snowboarding, Garner enjoys spending his free time outdoors reveling in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. He enjoys blowing off steam with his rock and roll cover band, Nana’s Pants Suit!

“It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing”
