Michael joined Kuth Ranieri in 2013 as a senior project architect. He is a registered architect in Massachusetts and California and a LEED Accredited Professional since 2004. His previous work experience includes a diverse array of project types including residential, wildlife and animal care, mixed-use affordable housing, large-scale educational and university, office, retail, and cultural projects. Michael received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Penn State University and Master’s degree from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. He has practiced in Boston and San Francisco since 1997 and has taught architecture courses at the Boston Architectural College and for Oxbridge Academic Programs in Paris.

He brings a broad set of professional skills, including program management of complex, multiphase building prototype and tenant improvement programs, architectural project management, and the formation and implementation of multidiscipline CAD/BIM standards. His academic interests stem from the potentialities of semi-autonomous systems; coordinated transportation infrastructures and microgrid, prefab, zero-energy structures along with the economic incentives or realignments that could make space for them.

When not in the office, he can probably be found hiking, biking, or skiing in the mountains, swimming, kayaking or kiteboarding in the bay, or running along the waterfront.

Associate Principal
Ophelia Wilkins joined Kuth Ranieri in 2015. She is a registered architect in the state of California and holds a Masters degree in Architecture from MIT in Cambridge, MA. Ophelia’s background is primarily in the areas of public transportation buildings and sustainable rural affordable housing. Linking these experiences is an interest in designing for public clients and creating transit-, bike- and pedestrian-oriented spaces.

Prior to joining Kuth Ranieri, Ophelia contributed to numerous projects in the Bay Area, including space planning for the downtown San Francisco BART stations, design of the 24th and Mission BART Plaza renovation, and SFO renovations including Boarding Area E and Terminal 3 East. From 2007-2010, Ophelia was a Rose Architectural Fellow based in Durango, Colorado where she developed and designed green affordable housing, setting a new normal of deeply energy efficient homes (50% of the area average) and developing a net-zero energy prototype using culturally-appropriate strategies. She has also contributed to design and construction of strawbale homes and public buildings on the Navajo, Hopi, and Turtle Mountain nations.

Contributing to her perspective on architecture are her interests in long distance trail running, road and mountain biking, yoga, and craft, including building clothes, furniture, and pottery.

Greg Morse
Project Architect
Ever since a charismatic teacher opened Greg Morse’s eyes to the life-shaping power of architecture, he has empowered others to wield architecture for a better world.

He earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design as class valedictorian from the University of Colorado and, while earning his Master of Architecture from the University of Illinois, he researched strategies for architects to better educate the public.

He has worked with a variety of architecture firms and non-profit design collaboratives across a broad spectrum of project types (Single- and Multi-Family residential, fire stations, schools, historic, and commercial) and levels of sustainability (LEED, Passive House, Living Building Challenge). His design research and education experience has helped curate and create museum exhibitions and conferences devoted to sharing the latest findings in evidence-based design.

After moving to San Francisco in 2021, he has become obsessed with bike racing and exploring natural areas all around the Bay Area.

Velimir holds a MArch II and a BArch from Iowa State University. He was also a BArch candidate at the University of Belgrade, Serbia.

Before joining Kuth Ranieri in 2023, he worked as a designer for several offices in the Boston area. His passion for product design and industrial design led him to join MIT's special research lab and center as a product designer.

Velimir is interested in the relationship between design and technology, focusing on structural design, construction and assembly methods, building components and services, as well as fabrication.

A movie buff, Velimir is proud of his extensive music and movie collection. He frequently circulates library materials and finds libraries to be truly meaningful public spaces. Art museums provide him with a reason to travel and maintain close relationships with family and friends.

He finds long walks to be aids to clear thinking, composition, and creativity. He believes that all truly great thoughts are conceived by walking and that no thought that cannot be maintained while walking is worth having.

Before joining Kuth Ranieri in 2023, he worked as a designer for several offices in the Boston area. His passion for product design and industrial design led him to join MIT's special research lab and center as a product designer.

Velimir is interested in the relationship between design and technology, focusing on structural design, construction and assembly methods, building components and services, as well as fabrication.

A movie buff, Velimir is proud of his extensive music and movie collection. He frequently circulates library materials and finds libraries to be truly meaningful public spaces. Art museums provide him with a reason to travel and maintain close relationships with family and friends.

He finds long walks to be aids to clear thinking, composition, and creativity. He believes that all truly great thoughts are conceived by walking and that no thought that cannot be maintained while walking is worth having.
Greg Morse
Project Architect
Ever since a charismatic teacher opened Greg Morse’s eyes to the life-shaping power of architecture, he has empowered others to wield architecture for a better world.

He earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design as class valedictorian from the University of Colorado and, while earning his Master of Architecture from the University of Illinois, he researched strategies for architects to better educate the public.

He has worked with a variety of architecture firms and non-profit design collaboratives across a broad spectrum of project types (Single- and Multi-Family residential, fire stations, schools, historic, and commercial) and levels of sustainability (LEED, Passive House, Living Building Challenge). His design research and education experience has helped curate and create museum exhibitions and conferences devoted to sharing the latest findings in evidence-based design.

After moving to San Francisco in 2021, he has become obsessed with bike racing and exploring natural areas all around the Bay Area.

Carlos Esquivel joined Kuth Ranieri Architects in 2017. A recent graduate, he earned his Bachelors of Art in Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley. His experience there allowed him to study both traditional and digital fabrication methods. In correlation, he practices both traditional design processes and form finding design techniques.

At Kuth Ranieri, Carlos has participated in producing an award winning pavilion for the San Francisco Market Street Prototyping Festival, SonoGROTTO. Carlos has a strong desire for exploring architecture and its intersection with culture. His views look to address how both function as interpretive symbols of existing paradigms, and using graphic techniques for expressing those views.

In his spare time, Carlos explores creating multi-media and mix-media art for small scale gallery exhibitions or picking up boxing gloves and going a few rounds.
