KJ Romine, AAIA

designer | associate

Active listening. KJ is an alum of both the U.S. Army and Drury University. He has traveled the world, but he’s happy to be back here in the Ozarks. KJ is originally from Mt. Vernon (Go Mountaineers!) and loves to camp, fish, hike, or kayak with his family. He’s also recently taken up golf (we’d suggest that savvy investors buy stock in golf balls, because it sounds like he loses a lot of them). 

KJ’s years in the military taught him to thrive in physically and mentally challenging environments, so he loves to dig into a project and get to work. He excels at listening to a client’s ideas, analyzing the information around him, and translating all of that into a design solution that meets their need. He became an hdesigngroup Associate in 2024. You should also know that KJ met Robin Williams (yes, THAT Robin Williams) and they complimented each other’s beards. Even the beardless here are jealous.
