Doyle is known for his positive project management style and commitment to his work. He often manages multiple projects for a client at a given time and works alongside his team around the clock as needed. On construction sites, he efficiently and effectively resolves issues that arise while maintaining lasting professional relationships with the contractor and consultants.
In 2007 Doyle was appointed to the Trenton Planning Board, where he helps shape the local community by amending land-use ordinances, advising applicants and requesting revisions on proposals to benefit the greater community. Doyle has participated in several recent panel discussions as an expert on school design, renovations, and adaptive reuse. At the 2010 New Jersey Future Redevelopment Forum, he discussed neighborhood schools and efficiencies in school design, particularly in the greater urban context of a site. At the 2010 NJ Historic Preservation conference, Doyle spoke about pending legislation that will become beneficial for protecting historic schools. Doyle also mentors Trenton-area high school students as part of the ACE (Architecture Construction and Engineering) Mentor program.
Doyle earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Texas Tech University. He is a resident of Trenton, N.J., where he and his wife purchased and meticulously renovated a 150-year-old house in the Mill Hill National Historic District. He is also an amateur cellist and artist.
