Daniel joined our team in May of 2014 after graduating from LSU with a Bachelor’s in Architecture and experience in healthcare, high-rise, and religious projects.

Committed to sustainable design, he remains focused on forming cohesive relationships between building and site through thoughtful orientation and building materials. At a young age, Daniel was immersed in missionary work growing up in Brazil, and he speaks English, Spanish, and Portugese fluently. His continued passion for culture and people is evident in his work on higher education and dining projects at Tipton Associates as well as research in sustainable churches in his time away from the office.
