Dwight has always loved to draw. From an early age that love of drawing, combined with a curiosity for how things were made and functioned, expanded his creative horizons into building models, woodworking, and even tinkering with cars. This quickly led to a passion for architecture—fortuitously leading him at seventeen to work for a central valley architect and former apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff: Arthur Dyson. Working for Dyson was a transformative experience for Dwight–it was very different from the boredom of high school drafting class–and learning from someone so interesting, idiosyncratic, and inspiring was an experience that has influenced his work to this day.
Dwight stayed in Dyson’s office for the next eight years before attending Berkeley and then Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. Upon returning to the Bay Area in 1993 he went to work for Peter Pfau, later becoming a partner in the firm Pfau Long Architecture. In his spare time Dwight still likes to draw, make things, play the guitar, and travel with his wife and son.
