A native of Detroit, Dane joined Payette in early 2017 as an Architect, having already practiced for several years. Dane quickly assumed a critical team role on the flagship project of the University of Connecticut’s “Next Generation” initiative, a new 200,000 GSF STEM Science Research building and 20-acre Northwest Science Quad site development. Dane has been instrumental in virtually every aspect of the project’s design and is currently shepherding it through the construction administration process, with occupancy anticipated in late 2022.
Dane’s contributions to the practice extend far beyond his project work. He is a committed educator, having taught core studios and classes at Roger Williams University, the Boston Architectural College and the Rhode Island School of Design. He brings a sophisticated, critical voice to the firm’s design dialogue. And most characteristically, Dane’s passion for fabrication and making is evident in everything he touches, from evocative and insightful study models to beautifully crafted building details.
