“I like drawing buildings” was the answer Brian, at the age of 10, gave his uncle when asked why he only drew buildings. At that moment his uncle suggested Brian become an architect when he grew up. From that day forward Brian focused his heart and mind on becoming an architect.
Brian attended Blue Hills Regional Vocational High School in Canton Ma where he learned mechanical drafting and AutoCad. After graduating in 1993 Brian enlisted in the US Army Reserve where he was a member of the Army Corp of Engineers. During his eight year commitment Brian worked on several construction projects in the U.S. and overseas in Kenya and Panama.
In 1994 Brian attended his first semester of college at the Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA where he graduated with an Associates degree in Architectural Engineering Technology. While attending Wentworth, Brian set the foundation for his professional career while being employed with a MP/E engineering company gaining valuable experience in electrical and mechanical drafting and design for the next five years.
Brian continued his education at the Boston Architectural College where he graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture in 2005. While attending the BAC Brian continued growing his professional career working for several architecture firms in the Boston area gaining valuable experience in commercial and industrial architecture.
Brian relocated to Arizona in 2007 to begin his plan of starting his own architecture firm, a plan that was established in 1999 during a vacation to Arizona. When Brian moved to Arizona he furthered his diverse project experience by adding multi-family residential and senior living design while being employed by a well known multi-family residential architecture company in Phoenix.
