David Folsom

Overland Park, KS, US



I am a recent graduate from the University of Kansas with my Master's in Architecture. I have an undergraduate degree in Business Marketing. I am really inspired by the work of Glenn Murcutt, Norman Foster and Renzo Piano just to name a few. I have been married for five years to a beautiful woman and we are recently expecting a baby boy in September.

I really love to work out and play sports of any kind to keep my mind sharp and my body in shape. I love reading books about history, art, design, architecture, and nonfiction biographies. I am also studying French. Professionally, I work extremely hard and I would like to be licensed in three to five years. I am currently working on IDP hours and will be starting my LEED coursework soon.
