Ken joined us with over 25 years of professional experience working in the design field, but his interest in the field started much earlier. As a young boy, he liked helping his big brother, a drafter, with blue prints. So Ken’s journey to become a drafter started. He began drafting classes in high school and went on to receive a diploma in architectural drafting from Detroit Lakes Vocational Technical Institute.
Ken launched his professional career working for a structural engineering firm. Years later, as work opportunities slowed in engineering, and he chose to move to architectural firms. The rest is history. Ken loves what he is doing because he gets to create something from nothing. He starts with a blank page and soon enough he has an entire design to happily pass on to his client. But his excitement doesn’t stop there. He eagerly does field work and enjoys watching buildings evolve into finished products.
Outside of the concrete jungle, you might find Ken outdoors either hunting or fishing. He also gladly spends time with his wife of 25 years and their daughter—a talented cheerleader who competed in a national cheerleading competition last year!
