Before joining the Slingshot team, Nolan was working to complete his Bachelor's degree in architecture with a minor in urban studies at Iowa State University. As part of the Slingshot team he collaborates with and supports the team on a variety of projects.
Nolan was drawn to Slingshot because of the collaborative and dynamic work environment that provides opportunities to work on a variety of projects with differing roles. He was also very interested in the design process and the way the work is rooted in its place and community.
When he's not at work Nolan enjoys spending time outdoors, whether that be biking, hiking, climbing, kayaking, or just relaxing. He also enjoys playing hockey, reading a good book, and traveling to new places.
"As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown." – Norman Foster
