I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA, where I spent most of my upbringing going to parades, eating crawfish, and biking through the city. I also spent a lot of hot, humid summers watching my dad utilize his carpentry skills to build houses and maintain historic buildings in the French Quarter. That is probably what subconsciously inspired me to enter the world of design. I attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture.

I have always had a love for the outdoors, new adventures, and traveling, but I never thought I would leave Louisiana until I met my wife. Moving to Atlanta would be a challenge since my average commute in New Orleans was 10 minutes, but I decided to take the risk for an awesome job and love. I got married, went on my honeymoon, packed up my whole life, and headed to Atlanta. Here, I launched my career at Vickers Design Group, and I am happy to call Atlanta home!
