Steve Mulkey recently joined Rosemann and Associates. He brings to the firm over thirty years of experience. Before becoming an architect Steve was employed as a draftsman and his mentor at the time encouraged him to pursue his Master of Architecture. Steve enrolled at the University of Colorado and obtained his degree. From there Steve worked as a project architect and worked as a construction manager, most recently at HNTB Architects. Steve enjoys the work he does on each project, but the Denver Crime Lab particularly stood out to him. He enjoyed the complexity of the project, the different challenges the client and budget offered, also combining interesting architecture. In the end the Crime Lab was something all parties were proud of, just like the saying, “success has many parents but failure is an orphan.”
On the weekends Steve enjoys gardening, in the past he grew vegetables until the deer made a buffet of his garden, he now sticks to flowers.

Recent University of Colorado-Boulder graduate, Lena Scrivanich, is excited to begin her architecture career with Rosemann and Associates. Originally, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Lena made her way to Colorado by way of Sonoma, California. Along with studying architecture, Lena also minored in 3D modeling and animation. She first began designing buildings as a child using video games as her platform.
In school Lena, designed an Alaskan community center in conjunction with an airport terminal located on the Kenai Peninsula.

Lena is looking forward to learning how architecture firms work and expanding her design experience. In her free time, Lena enjoys snowboarding in the winter, camping, and hiking in the warmer months. In addition, for several years she has ended her day with yoga, which has changed her life for the positive.
