Leadership, Chief Operating Officer

Tim joined Cooper Carry as Chief Operating Officer in 2021 and is based in the DC office. He appreciates how an understanding of human behavior enables design for an enriched human experience with the potential to elevate each design beyond merely functional.

Tim inspires workplace culture to be empowered with new types of collaboration and business partnerships, and he is prepared to lead Cooper Carry to the forefront of an AEC industry poised for dramatic technological evolution. Tim will act as a catalyst, charging Cooper Carry’s teams to advance design and delivery, gain new efficiencies for clients, and standardize new, best-in-class methods for bringing creative concepts to physical form.

Tim promotes professional growth by finding overlaps in the firm’s strategic direction and staff personalities and passions – recognizing the greatest value comes from a rich diversity of genuine expression and broad perspectives. He stimulates an open, team-oriented culture that focuses on learning through curiosity and mentorship.

As an agile and engaged architect, Tim believes innovative design can help save the planet. This includes a more effective use of human and material resources, along with designing environments to improve the wellness of the users and provide resilience for our changing future.

Born in Chicago, Tim grew up mostly in upstate New York and New Jersey, and has since settled in Washington DC, where he lives with his wife, Jen, two children, and dog. He enjoys frequent visits to the Big Apple and supporting US soccer and local DC sports teams. Tim holds a Bachelor of Arts in Building Sciences from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He is a registered architect and LEED AP® Neighborhood Development (LEED AP® ND).
