About Steve

Hello, my name is Stephen May I am a licensed architect in the state of Illinois.  I have been working full time in architectural firms since 1990 and became licensed in 1998.  I started my own firm D. A. R. T. Design, Inc. in 2004.  I wouldn’t say that our firm specializes in any one area in particular but, a good portion of the work that we have done has been for schools.  If you would like to see more of our work you can take a look around our website and view our Gallery.

My wonderful wife’s name is Trisha and we have two boys, Rease and Braden.  Trisha blogs about travel and has started her own home based travel agency www.alovefortravel.com.  My oldest is very active in sports and is always being shuttled around to some practice or game.  Both of the boys like to play soccer and it can be a year round sport if you want it to be.

I started this blog to try and reach out and educate more people on what architecture is and how it can help them, and because everybody else is doing it.  Along with that I will try and be funny and keep your attention.  I cannot promise that I will blog every day, I am sure that I won’t, but I will try and provide you with interesting and/or humorous information.  I am sure that my family will come into play often as we go through our daily routines.  My Christianity plays a large roll in my life and I thank god for all the blessings he has given me in my life.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog.
