Michael Gooden, AIAPrincipal Architect
Michael Gooden is the founding principal Architect and president of M Gooden Design, where he leads the design of all projects. While he founded M Gooden Design in 2012, it wasn’t until late 2015 that Michael fully launched the rebranded firm. Michael has nearly 15 years of both residential and commercial design experience, including 9 years at one of the top architecture firms in the United States. Gooden has been published multiple times in venues worldwide, including Dwell Magazine, the Dallas Morning News, FD House, and ArchDaily. He received a full academic scholarship to attend Baylor University and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Design.
Michael once toured the country in a smelly van with his band, playing music at theaters and bars for peanuts and the cheapest of beer.
Kevan Russell has worked as a project leader for a wide range of multi-family, commercial, and single-family projects in his young career. Kevan joined M Gooden Design in early 2016 as an Associate Partner. He graduated from Texas Tech University with a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture.
Kevan enjoys and thoroughly appreciates a well-crafted burger. He can be found on weekends searching far and wide for the juiciest patties and most decadent toppings.
