Thomas credits two things as what led him to architecture: an unusually strong love for history growing up, and the fact that he was gifted a full-sized Mayline drafting board at the age of eight.
Early in his career, Thomas focused on retail and commercial design and planning. Seven years of infrastructural/transit-focused design work followed, with an emphasis in construction administration and specialized structural and architectural detail development.
As a Senior Job Captain, Thomas’ duties include design and drawing production, detail development, precedent and case study research, construction management.

As a Senior Job Captain, Megan assists and collaborates with Senior Designers and Project Managers in the designing and presentation of projects. Megan focuses on residential, retail, and mixed-use projects. She works mainly in the Adobe Creative Suite to present our ideas in the most clear, efficient and effective manner.
Megan was first drawn to architecture for the chance to combine her mathematical left brain with her love for design. To Megan, architecture is limitless: With math, there’s only one right answer, whereas architecture allows for endless possibilities. She seeks to find a balance of aesthetics and practicality in each project.
As someone who grew from student intern in our San Francisco office to a full-time employee in our San Diego office, Megan continues to explore her passion and niche within architecture at each level of opportunity.
