Mike’s architecture career began over 45 years ago as an apprentice drafter. While working under notable architects, Mike’s passion for design grew, leading him to the School of Architecture at Auburn University. Since then, Mike has built a portfolio that spans a diverse field in both the public and private sectors. In every project, he leaves his mark with his signature passion and drive, especially when it concerns cost-effective, creative solutions. Over his career, this drive has translated into a long list of successful projects and happy clients.
