Brad is responsible for building relationships with area clients and collaborating with designers across DLR Group to grow the firm’s presence in Charlotte. A North Carolina native, Brad has practiced extensively across the market throughout his career. He approaches design by engaging end users who are at the center of every project, listening to their wants and needs, and accommodating those needs with thoughtful solutions.

"A well-conceived and executed design solution can truly elevate the human experience. Promoting community and sense of place using the built environment can powerfully shape relationships and educational success, both tangible and intangible."

Stewardship is a core personal value for Brad, stemming from his childhood in rural America where taking care of the land, its wildlife, and water sources are an integral part of life. He applies this same logic as a design professional, being mindful to maximize the use of natural resources in his designs, and use only the necessary energy.

"We must push for healthy and sustainable design solutions with our clients and our peers. Stewardship is good design and good design is stewardship."
