Drake is a native to Alabama where he became the third generation Auburn University graduate. At Auburn he received his BS in Horticulture and continued on to get his MLA. He has been in the industry for four years and started his career in residential design/build working in both Memphis, TN and Huntsville, AL.
Drake is passionate about the phrase “Design Everything,” from the minute details up to large-scale planning - each project and site having its own identity and uncommon features ready to be unearthed. No matter the scale, each site offers different opportunities that can be explored to create truly unique spaces for people to enjoy.
Drake’s love of the outdoors also extends to his hobbies as well. Whether it is hiking, camping, kayaking, golfing, or fishing, you know you will find him outdoors when he is not working. This passion for the outdoors is something he shares with his wife, Taylor, whom he met at Auburn. If he can’t be outside, you can find him playing guitar or dabbling in various art projects.
