When I completed the final requirements of the Architectural Experience Program and Architect Registration Examinations in December, it was the culmination of a decade-long journey to becoming an Architect. Licensure is a significant milestone in any Architect’s career and I’m grateful to the leadership of Wilkus Architects for making every resource available in the pursuit of my professional development goals.

Ever since I was a child, I dreamed of becoming an Architect. I wanted to be someone who creates the world around them and can turn an idea into a physical space that people can enjoy. This path I have taken myself down has been exciting as well as challenging. I have become the man that I idolized as a child and look forward to continuing to become the Architect that my younger self would be proud to look up to.

Not many people can say that they turned their passions into a career but becoming a licensed Architect has done exactly that for me. On a daily basis I get the pleasure of bringing great design ideas to my clients to help them grow their business. Architecture has always been a part of my life and I am so appreciative that the next step of this journey is complete.

Architecture has the potential to elevate the human experience in every aspect of our lives. That potential is what drove me to become an Architect. The journey wasn’t easy, but obtaining my license will allow me to explore these potentials professionally and make a positive impact on our built environment. I truly enjoy the work I do every day and look forward to the next chapter.

Growing up I had a parent who supported my creative design strength and pushed me to follow my passion. Architecture was that passion. It was a long process; it took many years of education, exams, and practice. Becoming a Licensed Architect is just another step in the process, as I will always be learning and creating something new every day.

Monument Sign | Detail Sketching

After the long Holiday weekend, we were going through some old sketches and came across a fun exercise that we worked out for the Hopkins office. When we knew we would have a walk-able office location with visible storefront, we knew signage would play a role in the design.

The sketches below were developed to help illustrate the design intent and construction detailing to the contractor. It's always fun to shift scale and think about the different design elements within a project.
