Geoffrey is a designer in our firm. He earned his Bachelor or Architecture from the University of Tennessee in 2015. While in school he concentrated on learning about sustainable design practices and used that knowledge when he was a part of the Green Oak Initiative design team. The team won gold at UTK EUReCa for designing a net-zero energy/water bunk house for the Red Bird Mission in Beverly, Kentucky. He was drawn to Elizabeth Eason Architecture because of their passion for sustainability and general altruistic philosophy.
