Jamie Wier, AIA, NCARB

Since his childhood, Jamie has been fascinated with the built world: how structures, spaces, and environments affect our lives, moods, and behaviors. Through architecture, Jamie is able to interpret his clients’ needs in ways that constructively influence those interactions, while leaving a physical legacy and impression on the world around him. Jamie spends most of his free time enjoying hunting, hiking, and a watching a good football game with his family.

Principal Architect

Michael W Boerner, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP BD+C

Throughout college and as he worked at architectural firms throughout the Southeast, Michael imagined he would start a firm of his own one day. Upon returning to Mississippi, he reached out to his friend and former college classmate, Jamie Wier, to do just that. In 2009, the two started what is now a 7-year-old, fast-growing firm. Michael is driven by the relationships he builds with clients, while turning their ideas and dreams into reality. In addition to his degree in Architecture from Mississippi State University, Michael received a Bachelors in Business Administration and a minor in Fine Arts from Millsaps College in 1998. He and his family attend Galloway Methodist Church, and he enjoys spending time at concerts, sporting events, and on the tennis court.

Jack returned to Mississippi in 2012 to fulfill a longtime dream of practicing his own brand of architecture with classmates and friends Michael Boerner and Jamie Wier. During his 15-year career, he has practiced architecture at prominent firms in New York, Birmingham, and Atlanta where much of his work was focused on K-12 and higher education facilities. Jack strongly believes in the practice of listening as a necessary step towards understanding the client.

He decided to move back to Jackson with his family and join forces with former college roommate, Jamie Wier, at Wier Boerner Allin.
