Seth is dedicated to the craft and profession of architecture. A strong client advocate, he is committed to integrating clients into the design process to produce work that goes beyond function and actually pleases.

As Creative Director of Blitz, Seth has a passion for improving user experiences of spaces. Each project is a meaningful opportunity, regardless of size or scope, and every design decision impacts the potential to improve someone’s experience of a space. His ongoing focus on maximizing the potential of spaces has delivered multiple thought-provoking projects, including an internationally lauded, adaptive reuse project for One Workplace which reimagined dated buildings into a bleeding-edge, world-class workplace and showroom.
