Aaron knows that while great minds think alike – different perspectives make for an amazing finished product. You might call him an architectural visionary, but Aaron also calls himself a bourbon connoisseur and a reluctant cat-lover. Either way, count on him to see the big picture and always ready to rally the team to achieve the dream!
How did you decide on your career path?
I started my college career in mechanical engineering because I was fascinated with how things worked. After getting into my core classes, I realized there weren’t as many opportunities for creativity as I would have hoped, so I went into architecture. It was a great mix of form and function.
What is your favorite part of the design process?
I love the initial schematic collaboration with the team, where you brainstorm all the possible design solutions. Everyone views the design opportunity from a different perspective, and mixing those perspectives into one idea produces the best end result. An individual can come up with a good design, but great designs take teamwork.

Beer, brandy, and Old Fashions… Seriously though, the people in Wisconsin have been extremely welcoming to my wife and me. There is also so much to do here. You can visit larger metropolitan areas, enjoy lake life, and everything in-between.
