Project Coordinator Jeremy Wright loves to draw and feels blessed to work with good people doing something that he enjoys. He has more than a decade of experience in commercial construction. When he’s not drawing, he’s playing guitar, woodworking, and enjoying the outdoors. Originally from Pennsylvania, Jeremy graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Master’s in Architecture and Construction Visualization, where he met his wife Jil. The Wrights are the proud parents of two cats and two dogs. Today, we’re digging in to get to know Jeremy and what drives him in his work.
What was your first job?
My first job was working as a busboy/dishwasher at a restaurant/lounge on Friday and Saturday nights from 6:00pm to 1:00am when I was 15 years old.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
What made you pursue architecture as a career?
I’ve always been good at drawing and I enjoy woodworking/construction. I thought working in architecture would be more stable than being an artist.
What’s one of the coolest things you’re working on right now?
The AG Museum Building Replacement project. Before I got into architecture I was designing and building animal enclosures (aviaries, rabbit hutches, etc.), so it feels connected to what made me want to pursue Architecture initially.
What’s your favorite thing about being on Team WBA?
My coworkers. They’re all very talented, hardworking, good people
