NCARB - Architect
Brandon began drafting for a residential design firm at the age of 14 in Las Vegas. He attended a high school academy where he was able to focus on computer drafting and Spanish. At the age of 24, while still working and attending architecture school, he passed the exams to be a Nevada licensed Residential Designer. He was possibly the youngest at that time, to receive that license and pass all the exams in one try.
In 2008 and 2011 Brandon earned his Bachelor and Master of Architecture degrees at UNLV. Through school he continued to work on residential and commercial projects, completing many meaningful projects and working with several great designers and architects.
Brandon and his family relocated to northern Utah in 2012 where he continued to work on residential and commercial projects. He was able to successfully complete many large hotel projects in several states, as well as other office, mixed-use buildings.
In 2014, Brandon earned his Architect license upon passing all seven of the rigorous licensing exams the first time. He believes in paying attention to details and in providing quality design. Owners and consultants have come to trust and recommend him highly.
In the summer of 2017 Brandon joined MRW Design Associates in southern Utah and continues his passion for architecture as he manages and designs projects. He currently resides in a small town in southern Utah with his wife and 4 young children.
