Meet the Team: Will Tonos

Will joined the WBA team straight out of college. He was drawn to the skilled and experienced architects on staff who are willing to take time out of their day to help him grow. He brings a fresh perspective to the firm and a desire to develop into a well-rounded architect. The Gulf Coast native has lived in many parts of the state and graduated from Mississippi State’s School of Architecture in 2015. Today, we’re diving deeper with Will to see what keeps him motivated.

What ignited a passion for architecture in you?

I’ve always loved to draw and design things. There wasn’t really one moment when I “became” passionate about architecture; I think it was built in.

What’s something no one really knows about you?

I mix my own custom fountain pen colors.

What has been your greatest accomplishment at WBA?

Gaining the experience through thoughtful mentorship to become a licensed architect.

When you need inspiration, where do you turn?

Nature… and coffee.

When you aren’t at work, what are you doing with your free time?

Tinkering with and upgrading my home PC, attempting cardio exercises, disc golfing, biking and chilling with my cat, Miss Cleo.
