New to the ABW Fold

Andrew Pharis has joined the staff of ABW for the summer as an intern. Andrew recently completed his second year in the architecture program at LSU. Go, Tigers!

A Pineville native, one of Andrew’s hobbies is theatre: performing, singing, and as a set designer/builder. He recounts a story of when he ventured into Silver Dollar Pawn Shop (of “Cajun Pawn-Stars” fame) looking for thirty ceramic pigs for use as props. As it turned out, Silver Dollar had plenty of pigs and was glad to get rid of some of them.

Andrew is very involved in AIAS, the student chapter of the American Institute of Architects, serving as chapter president. He will attend the AIAS Grassroots leadership conference in Washington, D.C. in July.

Andrew has already proven to be a capable and cheerful worker. He has shown the necessary skills to be productive and make real contributions over the summer. ABW is fortunate to have his talents with us for the summer.
