Purpose and method. Brad is a P.K. who grew up with a love of drawing, which means that he first made a name for himself by drawing portraits of people who fell asleep in church. Brad’s more current hobbies include rooting for the Cardinals, playing basketball, and getting outside to kayak, fish, or bike. Before coming to hdesigngroup in 2015, Brad attended the University of Arkansas where he studied Architecture, Urban Design, and Architectural History. He was named an hdesigngroup Principal in 2024. 

Along with his design and project management duties, Brad is also our first line of defense on the IT front, which often makes him our personal hero. Problem-solving is one of Brad’s interests, strengths, and favorite things all rolled into one. His dedicated attention to detail and insistence upon quality are assets to his clients. He treats each project with the same care and respect it would receive if it were his own.
