Stanley’s father was a commercial and residential general contractor and grew up with scales and T-squares around the house. At a young age he worked on construction sites with his father, brother, and uncle. He had a gift for drawing and in high school, was determined to apply his drawing skills. He took an architecture class and discovered that he was one of only a few students who knew what T-squares and scales were. With this edge, he realized that his drawing abilities could be used to communicate through the built environment. Years later, as a healthcare medical planner/designer, creating stress-relieving spaces for caregivers has delivered a new sense of meaning for Stanley and his career. His primary goal is to collaborate with local healthcare providers to plan for their community needs, listen to client expectations to keep facilities operationally efficient, flexible, safe and create environments that inspire patients to heal and staff to perform their best.
