New Employee Spotlight: Michael Nelson

Michael was born in Schenectady, New York. His dad was a “Mad Men” era advertising executive and they moved around quite a bit. It was a lot like being in the military. By the time Michael was 21 he had lived in seven different cities. When he got to Houston he decided he’d had enough and made Houston his home. That is until he moved to Dallas in 2005. Dallas is now proudly his home!

Michael graduated from Westside High School in Omaha and studied Architecture at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Working in Architecture is the only thing he ever wanted to do and he has been fortunate enough to have had a fulfilling, interesting career doing what he loves. Included in a long list of great clients are one US President, two American Ambassadors, and one US Senator.

Michael has had the honor of guiding the completion and construction of Philip Johnson’s final building.

We are so glad to have Michael on board!

  1. Favorite Architect? I have two favorites: John Pawson and Tadao Ando (yes, I’m a closet minimalist). Richard Meier is a close third.
  2. Where is your dream destination? My dream trip would be to take a photo expedition to Greenland and Iceland.
  3. If you could choose one superhero power, what would it be and why? Flying. Every kid wants to fly, right!
  4. When you’re not at the office, what are your hobbies? Photography, hiking, films/movies, choral singing.
  5. What inspires you? Love
