Carey is committed to delivering exceptionally functional, forward-thinking designs for each client. Carey understands how the design of a physical environment contributes to an organization’s evolution, serving as a catalyst to progress. That’s why he enjoys working with idea-driven individuals who view each project as a pivotal opportunity to elevate their organization’s goals, mission and brand.

The breadth of Carey’s work includes well-conceived and executed projects for both private and public sector clients, in scales that range from scrappy science-based startups to HQ buildings and new campuses.

As a firm leader, Carey enjoys working with talented designers and fostering the advancement of knowledge across all areas of the practice. Carey is a graduate of Iowa State University, served on the board of IFMA, and is director for the Global Design Alliance. Away from the office, Carey enjoys competitive downhill skiing, road biking, and spending time with his wife and three children. He also makes the best chili ever.
