My name is Anthony Meave, I am a recent graduate of the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Architecture. Throughout the years I have had opportunities to work in various fields, helping to develop significant aspects of my personality and skill sets. I have worked as a draftsman. I have worked in construction. I have been a designer, a manager, and a work hand. I know how to follow, and I know how to lead. I have learned how to work with a team while retaining the strengths of my own individual character.
Growing up in two distinct cultures has widen my understanding of different needs, likes and desires it has broaden my social awareness and accentuated the concept of duality in everyday life and in the built environment. I now find myself with the great privilege of having two very strong cultural backgrounds. Furthermore, I believe I have the responsibility to lead and be an example. My humble upbringing has given me extraordinary and valuable life experience and the desire to encourage others to continue to strive for a better future, a healthier environment, and a wealthier legacy that will attest to the grandeur of the human spirit.
