Craig is a previous SMPS Society President and recently received his AIA Fellow in 2019.

Craig’s practice, LGA Architecture, is founded with an approach to architecture focused on community transformation. His success at integrating community engagement and advocacy into architectural practice led to firm partnership at age 30 and to him becoming marketing principal nine years later. His leadership and marketing savvy built a community-based practice dedicated to creating the most community-minded and inspiring places in the Las Vegas Valley. His practice model extends marketing into the project process, building relationships across stakeholders and shaping meaningful narratives that facilitate design understanding for a broad audience. The result is more vibrant and vital community connections to architecture whereby residents openly participate in design charrettes and actively contribute to the design of their communities.
