What Drives Anthony?
Early in my life, I was told to set myself apart from others and to constantly challenge that which is normal so that my growth would never end. Brownstone was founded on this parallel principal. It is what makes our people exceptional and beyond capable to surpass our client’s needs.
Becoming a licensed Architect and being the first African-American to serve as the chair for the SC Board of Architectural Examiners.
