With over 34 years of experience working on a wide variety of projects, Roland’s primary goal is to passionately create excellent architecture, planning and design focused on regenerating cities and enhancing the quality of urban life and culture.
Roland has been involved with multiple stages of a wide variety of projects including the renovation of the Cobo Center Convention Center, Museum of African American History [Detroit], and the Greektown Casino. Recent work includes interior|workplace design and experiential graphics for DTE and many other businesses in the metro Detroit area. Having worked for several firms, Roland has also been in private practice for over 16 years, providing professional services on residential and commercial projects.
Having traveled and studied extensively, Roland will bring his experience to bear to enhance and support the AID Board. He has used his leadership skills to serve the community and architectural profession in many ways from participating on several National AIA committees and jury panels to mentoring high school students and serving in various capacities in his church. Two strong areas of interest within the field are Diversity + Inclusion as well as strengthening the reach of our local chapter within the metro Detroit region by developing new programs and opportunities for community outreach.
