James is a recent graduate from Kent State University, receiving his degree in Architecture. James admires architecture because it gives him the opportunity to combine his creativity with practicality to create unique, purposeful experiences. With a goal of becoming a more spherical thinker, he is always looking for new learning opportunities. He has acquired years of experience working on-site under contracting and construction firms. He believes this experience has provided him with valuable knowledge and a new perspective that has helped him optimize his design. James’s passion for dynamic, efficient design combined with his on-site knowledge is something that will add value to FMD. Outside of the office, you can find him training at his mixed martial arts gym, enjoying the outdoors, or spending time with his family.
