Born in Western Pennsylvania, Brandon’s architectural career was initially inspired by the great works of Frank Lloyd Wright (i.e. Fallingwater). His continued passion of art, drawing & building led him to the obvious path of being an architect.

Brandon acquired both his Bachelors of Science in Architecture and Master of Architecture degrees from the University of Cincinnati’s School of Design, Architecture, Art & Planning – a program that is consistently ranked among the top design schools in the nation.

Today, Brandon is a licensed architect in the State of Washington, has received certification from the National Council of Architectural Registration Board (NCARB), and is a LEED Accredited Professional (practicing sustainable strategies).
