design concepts by amanda
Amanda graduated from the University of Alabama in 2021 with a degree in public relations. After moving to Nashville, TN to work in AEC marketing for a year, Amanda moved back to Fairfield County to pursue a career in design and real estate photography.
Construction has always been a big part of her life. Her dad, a general contractor, has involved Amanda in his projects for as long as she can remember. Between the ages of 9-12, she spent her free time "working" for her dad, diligently answering emails on his Blackberry, completing walkthroughs of his projects, and learning to drive a Kobelco machine around (not by herself, for the record). Her hobby consisted of designing "homes" made of taped-together flash cards, which took up the living room floor for weeks (sorry parents).
Her current role as a designer at Anthony Tomas Builders allows her to wear multiple hats while still honing in on her design skills. She is currently designing her first single-family spec home in New Canaan. She looks forward to learning all there is to know about developing and designing a home from its conception, all while working toward obtaining an interior design certificate from Parsons School of Design.
