Managing Partner
San Francisco
Carrie is a Managing Partner in the San Francisco office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP with more than 25 years of diverse experience in design, technology, and management, with special emphasis on projects with complex programmatic and technological requirements. She is passionate about multi disciplinary, research-based sustainable design and the benefits it can bring to our lives. She believes in bringing all parties together as early in the creative process as possible to spawn new ideas, and develop a strong basis for new paradigms in architecture and urban design. 
With her background in both architecture and digital design, Carrie has a lifelong commitment to understanding how information technology is changing the way we live, and she translates this influence into SOM’s building designs. Carrie’s passion for advancing building design and technology is balanced by her “developer mentality” of optimizing her clients’ real estate investment as well as meeting their development goals and schedules.
