"I get the privilege of listening to a client's dream and making it a reality."
Working for the client's benefit while still meeting the needs of others involved.
Always observing, always learning, always improving.
"When I stand on an empty lot, I see it as a blank slate and a new beginning. It is my job to create a home that blends and moves with the landscape."
PROJECT Architect, NCARB
I have been at Bayliss Architects since 2006, but architecture has always been a part of my life. I have been working in the architecture and construction world since I was 14 years old. I worked for Bauer Group Architects before receiving my masters degree from Montana State University in 2005.
"Drive comes from within. It is a passion for me to create something new, or take something existing and make it better."
Clearly communicating complex ideas graphically.
Finding innovative ways to achieve goals.
"I find inspiration everywhere. Even if I am just exploring a familiar place, I notice a new and interesting detail or material being used."
Project Manager, ARCHITECT IN TRAINING
I am from Saskatchewan, Canada, originally. I received an Architectural Technologist degree from SIAST in Canada. I worked for two years before coming to Bozeman where I attended Montana State University. Five years later, I received a Masters of Architecture. I have been working at Bayliss Architects ever since.
"I've always loved making things and learning how pieces work together as a whole."
The ability to understand a building holistically from the initial stages.
Willingness and ability to learn and apply new information.
"My inspiration comes from people and the ability to enrich their lives and express their uniqueness in the form of architecture."
project manager, ARCHITECT IN TRAINING
A Montana native, Dustin has worked on and off as a carpenter in the Bozeman area since 2004. In 2015 he received his Masters of Architecture from Montana State University. After graduating, he briefly worked as an intern at A&E Architects prior to joining the team at Bayliss Architects. Additionally, he has achieved certification as a Passive House Consultant.
"I am driven by the challenge to continually find ways to add value to whatever I am working on."
Dustin has a high level of craftsmanship in drawing, painting, and wood working, which has given him a strong base that applies directly into the profession of architecture.
"Ideals of harmony between our social and natural environments are a constant inspiration to me."
