I grew up on a farm in northwestern Kentucky and have always enjoyed creating things and solving problems. On the farm we often found ourselves inventing solutions to everyday issues as equipment would break down and tasks would need completion. From learning to weld to playing with Legos this understanding of how things work and how things were assembled matured into thinking of how elements can be manipulated to create space and architecture. This passion for art and science led me to my studies at WKU and then eventually UT in Knoxville. After receiving my master’s degree from UT and getting through my internship, Brian and I teamed up to create the company you see today.

Today, I act now as our firm’s marketing principal and am involved in not only the day-to-day design and BIM operation but both digital and analog relationships of CW. Having the opportunity to create structures for clients and help build my own company is truly a dream in the making.

At home, I spend a lot of time hanging out with my two little girls and my lovely wife Myranda. The girls and I enjoy weekend trips to Lake Barkley to visit family, playing video games together, and the occasional motorcycle ride.
