He’s a fountain pen kind of guy. With a selection of Montblanc’s in different ink colors in his pocket, at the ready for whenever inspiration strikes. Which is often because Thom draws daily. He can fill a Leuchtturm1917 sketchbook within a week. His preference is to storyboard ideas with words, drawings and paint before translating design into Sketch-up or Revit. A design leader in the Fort Worth office, Thom mentors our architects, interior designers and engineers. He especially likes to dig into unique projects like urban small format retail stores or tenant improvement projects with the help of younger designers. It’s a reciprocal collaboration where both learn from the other. Equally comfortable designing corporate workplaces, big-box retail or custom artwork, Thom always grounds his work in a deep understanding of the client, the business and the locale. His projects authentically reflect the client every time.
