Hailing from Winslow, Arkansas, Gary Moore worked in custom residential remodeling for four years in Northwest Arkansas before joining the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design at the University of Arkansas in 2002. While in the program he studied abroad in Rome as well as Mexico City. Upon graduation Gary moved to Seattle to begin his career in architecture.
Gary spent four years in Seattle where he worked on projects that ranged from a residence on Bainbridge Island to a 260,000-sf mixed use project located next to the Space Needle in downtown Seattle. When he wasn’t working on projects around the city, he spent his spare time remodelling his 1907 Fisherman’s Bungalow.
After a successful career in Seattle, Gary returned to Arkansas to his farm in Winslow with his wife in order to be closer to family and began working at Childers Architects in Fort Smith. There he honed his certified-architect skills and acted as the project manager over many buildings, which included community centers, food distribution centers, wellness centers, a complete remodel of the pediatric section at the Talihina Choctaw Health Center, and a new behavioral health building for the Choctaw Nation.
Along with architecture, Gary is also passionate about both travel and botany, from backpacking the Greek Islands to canoeing down the Amazon River looking for exotic plants. Need to know anything about bamboo? Gary is your guy.
