Did you know?
Curtis fell in love with architecture at an early age when he saw his grandfather’s architectural models and designs on the wall when he would visit his home. Curtis found something amazing in the notion that an idea that was in your mind and then on paper could be made real. What he loves about architecture is working through the design process and then ultimately seeing the project built and completed successfully. There is a unique sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that comes when you work together as a team with the client, engineers, and contractors and complete a project that serves its intended purpose well.
Curtis is the husband of a beautiful wife and father of four boys. He enjoys sports, art, movies and music in his spare time.
