Josiah David Hinkle has been developing his drawings since childhood.  His design education began very early at Miami's highly respected, Design & Architecture Senior High. He earned a scholarship to attend Syracuse University, an institution consistently ranked among the top architecture schools in the United States, where he completed his Bachelor of Architecture. He has worked for and with developers, city planners, realtors, architects, interior designers and design professionals  both nationally and internationally. For Mr. Hinkle, architecture is simply a means to follow a passion for drawing that has been consistent throughout his life. The drawings and the visualizations he creates today receive the same care and attention to detail as the sketchbooks that have accompanied his journey.
