Favorite quote: “I’d rather die while I’m living than live while I’m dead”~ Jimmy Buffett

Michael J. Hamilton, AIA, is a Managing Principal and Director of Federal Healthcare at Altus Architectural Studios. Much of his 26 years in the architectural profession have been spent serving the needs of healthcare facilities across the Midwest.

Mike’s introduction to hard work came with his first job, which was washing dishes at a local Romeo’s Mexican Restaurant. As a child, he aspired to be a plumber, like his father. Since then, this work ethic and desire to help others has never waned.

Today, he excels as both an innovative designer and a well-rounded professional who fully understands the design, code, managerial and technical aspects of today’s complex healthcare projects. Michael has extensive experience in all phases of a project, from Programming and Conceptual Design through Construction Administration. Mike also currently heads Altus’ Government and Federal programs as Vice President of Federal Healthcare.

Mike enjoys everything in the great outdoors, is especially fond of boating, and is an accomplished scuba diver, having over 130 dives to his credit. He is most proud of his family, which includes wife Stephanie and two high-school aged children.

VICE PRESIDENT | ARCHITECT

Evan Lamprecht

AIA, NCARB

Evan Lamprecht has been in the architecture world for as long as he can remember, following his father Loren to work sites before he could barely walk. It was perhaps inevitable that this early upbringing would lead Evan to a career in architecture. Something else that Evan discovered while growing up was his love of team sports, especially basketball. It is true that he is “vertically gifted,” but Evan’s height only added to his effectiveness on the court. He went on to play collegiate basketball in large part due to his strong work ethic and desire to lead winning teams.

As much as he loved playing basketball, the art and science of “building things” were never far from Evan’s mind. Today, after earning his Masters of Architecture, he now serves as a Healthcare Project Architect at Altus. Evan’s passion for healthcare design is rooted in a desire to create healing spaces for patients and their families. He is able to create award-winning results using his natural ability to drive open communication and collaboration through all phases of the planning and design process. Evan also brings a strong understanding of and aptitude for technology to the role, which has helped both Altus and the clientele it serves.

Evan is still adept at landing free throws on the basketball court, but his current free time is more likely spent teaching his own son (with wife Meganne) to dribble and shoot. Only time will tell if the little guy will follow in his Dad’s footsteps, but if bets were to be placed, the likelihood is strong. At age two and a half, he is a good foot taller than his similarly-aged peers. He also loves to visit his Dad at the Altus office.

SENIOR PROJECT MANAGER

Dwayne Meyer

AIA, NCARB

Favorite Quote: “Don’t give up. . . don’t ever give up” ~ Jimmy V

Dwayne Meyer spent many days as a child in the sandbox. He and his two older brothers would create sheds from scrap lumber and boards to house their toy farm implements, each staking out a corner of the expansive, sandy area where they would pass the time. The boys’ “farms” were connected by roads,  bridges and culverts. Ponds and reservoirs were added via the garden hose.

When Dwayne outgrew the sandbox phase, he learned the value of a hard days’ work plucking chickens, gathering eggs, bucket feeding calves, digging musk thistles in the pasture and walking beans on neighbor’s farms. As the youngest of seven, Dwayne reflected on the lessons he learned about hard work, sharing, the love of family, and making the most of what you’re given. Dwayne shared that until some of his older siblings left the house, he slept very well on the living room sofa. It may be true that they didn’t have a lot growing up, but what they did have was appreciated and valued.

Dwayne didn’t know it at the time, but that early “rural planning experience” via the sandbox, and his ability to appreciate and adapt to any circumstance, led to his interest in a career in architecture.  Today, with more than 20 years of healthcare architecture experience to his credit, Dwayne fills an essential role as a Senior Project Manager for the Altus team. From small-renovations and facility upgrades to large-scale health care system planning and design, Dwayne brings his tenacious approach to “getting the job done right” to every project he tackles.

When he isn’t working Dwayne enjoys sharing his love of food with others. A self-described Anthony Bourdain fan, Dwayne finds it relaxing and fun to explore the social aspect of food and how it nurtures and connects people. Like Bourdain, Dwayne also enjoys travel, including smaller communities within the state; he is equally content at home with his wife and son. Dwayne also enjoys watching wilderness survival shows and is deeply intrigued by individuals who can sustain and thrive living a life of self-reliance.

MANAGING PRINCIPAL

Raymond Drzymala

Favorite Quote: “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well- preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride! ~ Hunter S. Thompson

Ray Drzymala took a circuitous route to architectural practice management, but once he discovered his natural ability to lead others and businesses to success, he never looked back. For more than 12 years, Ray has been making a measurable difference in the business of healthcare architecture. As Managing Principal for Altus, Ray’s day-to-day includes managing the Denver office, responding to the needs of Altus clients across the nation, identifying business development opportunities and providing sound strategy and leadership for the entire organization.

As a child, Ray’s earliest aspirations were to become a physician or pediatrician. He grew up in Hawaii, which not only sparked his love of the outdoors but also provided the kind early work experience that builds real character. While serving on the production line of a pineapple factory, Ray learned the value of hard work, the importance of having a sharp knife, and an even sharper sense of humor.

After receiving a B.S. from the University of Colorado, Boulder he moved to Maui where he met his wife Deborah. Eventually, Ray’s creative leanings took him to New York City to study and work in the field of fashion design. While working full-time during the day, he obtained a second degree in Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T) Moving back to Hawaii to be with family, he found himself in the Technology Industry working at Spirent Communications. In this role, his work took him around the world, opening offices in Hong Kong, Beijing, and Paris. His next stop was architecture business management and leadership, which has proven to be Ray’s true calling and passion.

Living and in Boulder with his wife and their Silver Labrador Retriever Thor, Ray enjoys active outdoor pursuits such as snowboarding and mountain biking. He is the go-to-neighbor for just about any kind of home repair or remodeling effort, still enjoys creating and sewing clothing for his wife, nieces and friends, likes working on cars (especially fast ones) and is known for being a really good cook, friend and mentor. Ray takes the Altus mission of “helping humanity heal” to heart and is personally gratified by knowing the work done at Altus serves the type of higher purpose that only healthcare architecture can provide.

Michael Levin

AIA, NFPA

Michael Levin has been involved in all phases of architecture on a variety of project types for more than 35 years. From his earliest job mowing lawns to the integral role he plays today for Altus and its clients, Mike has always been someone who could be counted on to give every job his highest attention and utmost focus on quality. As a principal for Altus, Mike has served as Project Manager, Principal Designer, or Project Architect for numerous health- and medical‐related facilities. He has broad expertise in project management, programming, design, master planning, specifications, cost estimating and contract administration.

In 2020, Mike hopes to pare back his full-time role with Altus, which will allow more time to spend with his family and for his hobbies that include boating, golfing, playing the guitar and 3D printing. He will continue to provide leadership and integral architectural expertise and support for a select group of Altus clients.

Michael Goertzen

AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, CDT

 

Favorite Quote: “Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.” ~ Robert C. Gallagher

For a brief time in Mike Goertzen’s childhood, he wanted to grow up to be like Ben Cartwright, the patriarch of an all-male Nevada ranching family featured in the TV classic, “Bonanza.” Once he discovered that the Cartwright’s thousand-acre spread, known as the Ponderosa,  was little more than actors on the screen, he turned his attention to architecture. As it turns out, another popular television character, Wilbur Post of “Mr. Ed” fame, was an architect. That was good enough for Mike.

In reality, Mike had always had an aptitude for a future career in architecture: creativity and imagination; an interest in construction; high-level artistic abilities; and a collaborative personality. At age 12, he began working on an uncle’s farm outside of Aurora, Nebraska, adding “hard work” to his growing resume. Since graduating from the University of Nebraska with a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies,  Mike has devoted nearly 35 years of his career to specializing in healthcare architecture all across the United States. His duties have ranged from project administration including project planning, to user group meeting coordination, team coordination, code studies, design and detailing. Mike has an understanding of the advancement in technology in architectural practice, along with the impact these advancements have on the delivery of services and the ultimate care received by patients.

When Mike isn’t working, he enjoys traveling, spending time with his family and volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America, MidAmerica Council. In the past 10 years, Mike has worked with more than 500 scouts in their progress toward attaining Rank of the Eagle.

DESIGN LEADER

Scott Nordstrom

AIA, LEED AP

Favorite Quote: “Without love, it profits nothing.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:3

Scott Nordstrom has extensive experience in planning, designing and illustrating a wide variety of project types including site analysis and layouts, healthcare facilities, retail, schools and renovations. He designs and illustrates the project site, floor plans, exterior and interior elevations in a cohesive way that is easily understood and appreciated by every client. Scott is an excellent communicator and project leader; his work allows project owners to easily visualize concepts, enabling them to make quicker decisions and keep projects moving forward. He is able to tap into both analytical and artistic skill sets; Scott is among the few experienced architects who still create hand-drawn, watercolor renderings to help clients visualize design concepts.

Scott has always enjoyed creating and building and was able to learn on the job by helping his father with construction projects.  He is known for being generous with his time both on and off the job. Most recently, Scott designed and built a rustic-themed wedding barn for his daughter’s wedding and when he isn’t working at Altus or volunteering his time at church or in the community, he is generally involved in a variety of projects for the a seasonal tree farm that has been in his family for generations. Scott is a volunteer for the Open Door Mission, assists with Omaha Rapid Response-Disaster Relief, and has spoken (through a signer) at the Iowa School for the Deaf and local Community Colleges about the architectural profession and processes.

SENIOR PROJECT ARCHITECT

Doug Swartz

Doug Swartz has more than 30 years of architectural design experience which he brings to every project, along with his sharp sense of humor and ability to lead diverse project teams. With Doug involved, clients are certain to receive highly accurate, well-planned designs and expertly coordinated contract documents. Doug is known for his skills in developing technical drawings that are not only accurate, but also enhance the overall design.

While working his first job delivering the Omaha World Herald, Doug dreamed of growing up to be a professional athlete. Few know it, but Doug was a power lifter in college (touting a personal best bench press of 435 lbs.) and found inspiration from Christian power lifter, Paul Anderson. Lucky for Altus and our clients, Doug ended up taking the architecture route. Today, he channels that strength and athletic talent into winning designs and plans for our clients. In his spare time, Doug is an avid classic car enthusiast, enjoys riding his bicycle, and spending time with his family.

Favorite Quote: “No man ever stands in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” ~ Heraclitus

Kyle Adamson has more than 20 years of architectural design experience. A decade of that time was spent focused exclusively on healthcare projects. He has played an instrumental role in planning and designing functional healthcare projects ranging from acute inpatient facilities, hospital renovations, new ground-up hospitals, outpatient clinics and medical office buildings.

Kyle’s earliest aspirations were to be a veterinarian or a Chicago Bears football player. His first real job was selling Cutco Knives (and he’s still pretty sharp!). These dreams and hands-on experiences added flavor to Kyle’s path toward becoming a licensed architect; this achievement is something he is most proud of today.

When he isn’t at work, Kyle focuses on enjoying family time, cooking, gardening, and golf. Rumor has it that Kyle hasn’t completely given up on his dream to participate in professional sports. He is a “pretty good” golfer and would not turn down the chance to play on the pro circuit if he had the chance one day.

Favorite Quote: “Make it simple, but significant.” ~ Don Draper

When she was little, Julianna Pochon simply wanted to be old enough to drive. With license in hand, Julianna was off and running and she hasn’t really slowed down since. Her earliest work life was spent at Orange Julius squeezing fresh oranges for juice. Since then, and after earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Pacific Lutheran University, she explored other professional roles before making the bold decision to pursue her Masters in Architecture at the University of Colorado-Denver. Julianna admits, “it would have been easier” to remain status quo, but that is a phrase that has never been a part of her vocabulary or character.

As an architect, Julianna finds real purpose in contributing in meaningful ways through design. She especially likes working with all stakeholders to create efficient, high-functioning spaces, taking the time to listen, read between the lines and interpret the ways a space will be used before ever putting a plan on paper. Julianna enjoys coordinating with engineers, interior designers, equipment suppliers and users to create a well-coordinated set of drawings for construction.

When she isn’t working. Julianna prefers to keep things simple and quiet. She might be found knitting, tending a Zen garden, or playing golf. Julianna has two rescue dogs, Ranger and Bam Bam.

Favorite Quote: You miss 100% of the shots you never take.” ~ Wayne Gretzky

Chris Peterson is a Senior Project Coordinator at Altus with extensive healthcare design experience. His passion for healthcare design comes naturally to Chris; it matches the passion he brings to just about every challenge he faces.

Omar Al Mulki

Favorite Quote: “He that can have patience can have what he will.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

When Omar Al Mulki reached one of the many goals on this list – to graduate with his architectural degree – he simply checked that achievement off and moved right on to the next. Omar joined the Altus team as a project coordinator just after graduation and has been working as a key member of our planning and design team ever since. This drive and business-focus came naturally and early to Omar; as a six-year old, he started his own concession stand. 

Omar is a self-described, lifelong student. He puts a great deal of time and effort into understanding what generates value for Altus clients. He is a proponent of using technology to find ways to turn challenges into opportunities and to advance architectural practice.

With his mind never far from the list of goals he’d like to achieve, there is one in particular Omar tries to accomplish every day. “My personal goal is to go to bed every night a little wiser than when I woke up.” In addition to his full-time role at Altus, Omar is working part-time toward an MBA at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. He enjoys reading, studying history and spending time with his wife, Molly.

Favorite Quote: “Be curious, not judgmental.” ~ Walt Whitman

Eva Krueger is inspired by finding innovative solutions to design challenges and her role as an interior designer for Altus allows her to do just that. While obtaining her degree from Kansas State University, Eva added a design focus on gerontology. This has provided excellent perspective when crafting solutions for Altus healthcare projects of all kinds.

Eva’s first job was babysitting, but once she was old enough to drive, she graduated to the role of sandwich designer at Blimpie. To this day, we hear that Eva can make a mean sandwich. As a child, she aspired to be an opera singer, although this was likely motivated by her desire to annoy her brothers. Today, Eva loves teaching, learning and continuing to grow, so we won’t rule out a future career at the Metropolitan Opera just yet.

When she isn’t working to finding purposeful and beautiful interior solutions for Altus Architectural Studios’ clients, she can be found with her husband and two active boys working on their renovated 1890’s Victorian home.

DIRECTOR OF ACCOUNTING

Gabriela Wulff-Marcano

Favorite Quote: “Always walk with the sensitivity of the Holy Spirit. It dwells in you.” ~ Pastor Lance Bingley

Gabriela Wulff-Marcano’s  accounting career began quite early – at age five, in fact. At this young age, Gabi received a typewriter from her father as a gift and, combined with the 10-key adding machine he had on his desk, Gabi would play “office” day in and day out. By age seven, she received yet another present from her father – her own electric cash register. In addition to occupying her time, these gifts were the foundations for what would become a life-long passion for and pursuit of numbers, as well as a career in accounting.

Gabi was born in and grew up in Venezuela; an idyllic upbringing and her spunky personality blend nicely to foster the outgoing, adventurous spirit that is evident the very first time you meet Gabi. As the youngest of eight, she and her siblings (four sisters and three brothers) spent many summers at Puerto La Cruz, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. While in college, she worked as a receptionist at one of the largest hospitals in Caracas. Today, she is proud to live and work in the United States where “total freedom” is something she treasures and does not take for granted.

The same passion she brings to her role as Altus’ Director of Accounting is also found in her personal life. Along with her husband Aquiles, daughter Clarisa and their dog Chico, Gabi enjoys exploring  – mountains, rivers, beaches or deserted islands – they are always ready to embark on another adventure together.

Favorite Quote: “Choose being kind over being right and you’ll be right every time.” ~ Richard Carlson

Jill Reeves has over 30 years of experience in healthcare strategic marketing. With a strong background in traditional marketing practice, she has also worked extensively in the fields of market research, statistical analysis and healthcare interactive/digital marketing. Before joining Altus, Jill was marketing manager for a diagnostic medical equipment distributor, supported a SaaS-based healthcare IT startup, and spent more than 20 years as a communications director for a healthcare marketing research firm.

Jill learned the value of a hard day’s work at a very young age. Almost before she could walk, she could be found washing windshields at her Dad’s Mobil gas station along old Highway 34. Payment included a cold bottle of Coca-Cola from the machine and a handful of peanuts from the coin-operated dispenser. Jill’s love of storytelling (and truth be told, her colorful vocabulary) can be directly attributed to those early days at the gas station.

One of Jill’s biggest motivators is being able to help others, and her job at Altus allows her to do just that. In addition to her full-time role with Altus, Jill is an adjunct professor of healthcare marketing, teaching both undergraduate and MBA-level courses to health professionals at Nebraska Methodist College.
