In 2018, we celebrated Tim’s 25th year in the profession of Architecture.

“When I first began working as an Architect, my hope was to be able to provide design solutions for Church clients, and I looked forward to opportunities to design sacred space. It’s hard to believe that 25 years later I’ve had opportunities to work on more than 65 Church projects, and I’ve had so many more opportunities than I could imagine, to design data centers, office buildings, parking structures, and significant projects for higher education clients. I’m grateful for the many clients who have entrusted me with their projects.”
