We have worked together as a team in different capacities dating back to 1994 at our alma mater, Auburn University. Where we were a part of a great class that changed the ultra competitive culture to one of cooperation & collaboration.

partner & creative director
Blessed with a series of undeniably talented mentors, a love of learning, teaching and new experiences, as well as a thirst to create and problem-solve, almost two decades within the design field have been steeped rich with layers and detail through the design, production and management processes. Filotimo (Greek for ‘helping a friend for no other reason than it’s the right thing to do’) brought me sight-unseen to China, where our associate team helped Neri & Hu build, with both responsibility and authority, amazing businesses from scratch.
With Central Florida as home, time is rounded out volunteering on community boards and economic development committees. I travel locally and abroad to absorb history & culture, read quantum physics and unapologetically watch cartoons to counteract the seriousness of eight years in Asia. I spend time with my lovely wife, our families and recently traversed up a mountain to visit a monastery built into its side.
Steven W. Braun
partner & projects director
I grew up in Miami, FL before moving to the Tennessee Valley for High School. I chose Auburn University for Architecture school, where I led initiatives on experimental 3D work utilizing video game engines to present a project’s narrative. I shared those methods with other students and I believe that was when I began to develop an interest in teaching. I spent previous years teaching Architectural History at UTC, and I have gained a love for teaching and learning.
I am married and as my wife, Kerri can attest, I love to spend time outdoors. I think climbing, kayaking, surfing, and backcountry hiking are ways for us to connect to ourselves. I truly love honest travel as I feel it strengthens us in many ways. I have a passion for art and the written word. I love the works of Emerson, Muir, and Thoreau. I love being a dad, it is all I have ever wanted to be. I have five children and live with my wife in Milton.
I am a licensed architect in 4 states.
