Before partnering with Michael, Dean helped create notable buildings across the southeast, including some that grace Atlanta’s skyline. He gained extensive experience in hospitality, most notably with his design of Atlanta’s Four Seasons Hotel (now the Occidental Hotel). Dean’s understanding of how to define spaces that are warm and luxurious, timeless and modern, comfortable and impeccably detailed speak to his understanding of how to draw people in, and build places that consider life on all levels.


The synergy between Michael and Dean can be best described as two people with a common philosophy who view things from different angles. With Michael’s vision, client rapport and leadership skills and Dean’s ability to bring projects to life with beautiful illustrations, detailed elevations and technological skills, they compliment one another to a tee and continue to grow the firm to new heights.
