Craig Graduated from Cal-Poly San Luis Obispo in 2000 with a B Arch degree from the College of Architecture and Environmental Design a  nationally top ranked architecture school currently ranked #2 in the nation for over 40 yrs.

Mr Goodman also has post graduate  self-directed education and experience in healthcare design, engineering and has completed a certificate program in construction management.  Benefiting from differing yet compatible perspectives that bridge the gap from architect to contractor.  Mr Goodman 's Construction management certificate in construction estimation, and construction management from turnkey construction Institute in 2011 along with working for a contractor providing Design-Build experience  for two additional years has  buttressed Craig's comprehensive education. 

Recruited by a major international A&E design firm known for its modern vocabulary  before graduation from college, Craig has had exposure to a vast array of design styles and detailing. He has worked in other nationally top ranked architectural firms from international, national, regional, and local boutique offices .

Craig's First project as a registered Architect  in California was a 10 Million Dollar Oncology Building in Laguna Hills California on the Saddleback hospital campus. With AMB Craig led the firm's clientele of  Oshpd 1 , and Oshpd 3 hospital projects, clinics and commercial work. Working with large volumes of projects, an uncommon dynamic in most architectural offices, Mr. Goodman managed and personally contributed to over thirty projects on an ongoing basis concurrently managing the clients expectations with regard to deadlines and budgets, meeting routinely with state officials  be it fire Marshals, state structural engineers or administrative Heads of staff  at OSHPD . Craig  also led full technical direction issues relating to all aspects of the Design-Build corporation .

Mr. Goodman is forging a path toward creating a unique Santa Barbara architecture firm that seeks common ground between competing interests of gentrification and the status-quo. Exceeding expectations of contextualization while simultaneously  introducing new detailing is our mission locally in the neighborhoods which require this quite restraint.

"Our Architecture approach draws homage to both the austere restrained classical Spanish revival style of the Andalusian regions of southern Spain fused with the local heritage of the local monterey   mission style periods  that locally coalesce this unique branding of  the "Santa Barbara" style. this enduring style with combinations of  these timeless traditional detailing have  a old world charm ,while adding the most beneficial components of the modern building technologies and environmental approaches in its creation. We aim to continue the local vernacular with our own theme which expresses  an underlying elegance" .
