As a member of Schooley Caldwell, Keoni has functioned as a designer, project manager, and project architect. He is experienced in a wide range of building types, including skyscrapers, museums, healthcare facilities, and academic buildings. Recent projects include the Columbus Museum of Art and the Michael B. Coleman Governmental Center. One of things Keoni likes most about being an architect is being on the jobsite working out problems with the people who actually build the building.
Keoni received his Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Architecture from Rice University and his Master of Architecture from Princeton University. He is a registered architect and a LEED accredited professional. Keoni also is an adjunct professor at the Knowlton School of Architecture at the Ohio State University, where he teaches courses in building construction, building systems, and sustainability, and served as the architecture faculty advisor for OSU’s 2009 and 2011 Solar Decathlon projects. He is also a member of the City of Columbus’ University Impact District Review Board.
In what little free time he has left, Keoni likes to sit on the back deck of his house in the University District enjoying a good microbrew while watching the local barred owls raise their newest brood of owlets.
