While working for an Architect in Memphis, Richard discovered his passion for the architectural profession. Although he had earned an associate’s degree in drafting and design technology and worked for several years in the field, Richard made the decision to go back to school at Mississippi State University receiving his Bachelor of Architecture in 2012. While earning his degree Richard worked building non-profit housing projects and learned to truly appreciate environmentally friendly ways of building.
After graduation, Richard gained invaluable experience in construction and design in both the residential and commercial markets. Richard moved to the Memphis area with his wife and two sons, and joined the Carlton Edwards team in 2016.
