Creating space to empower is Thom’s philosophy.“I love architecture because it is the beautiful mix of art and science to make place. As architect’s, we craft the world where we live work and play. To this end, I seek to be curious, empathetic, optimistic, and socially responsible.”
As a Senior Architectural Designer and Board of Director for Progressive AE, Thom leads clients from visioning and conceptual design through construction. Thom believes that to be a good designer, you also need to be a good technical architect. He takes great pride in generating not only irresistible spaces and experiences but also great details and integrated systems. “Throughout my career, I have sought to build places and spaces that are human-centric; to build trusting, engaging, and fun relationships with people in order to inspire them to realize their inner-most dreams.”
Thom also serves as Vice President of AIA Grand Rapids.
