Tommy Watkins
President / Architect

Tommy has been designing award-winning custom homes with Phil Kean Design Group for over six years.  Originally recruited by PKDG from Phil Kean’s alma mater, Washington University in St. Louis, Tommy was a star student in Wash U’s prestigious architectural graduate degree program. There, Tommy earned both a Master of Architecture and Master of Construction Management after completing his bachelor’s degree in architecture from Miami University in Ohio. 

Fresh out of graduate school, Tommy began training under Phil, learning the thoughtful design process and signature architectural elements that Phil had developed throughout his years.  After three years working directly with Phil, Tommy branched out and went to work for a leading commercial architectural firm where he earned his Architectural license and rounded out his knowledge of architecture and construction in the commercial, multi-family and hospitality arenas. 

Coming full-circle, PKDG was thrilled to welcome Tommy home in 2019 when he returned to his love of designing custom residences, which he discovered was his true passion.  With knowledge and experience that far surpass his years, Tommy approaches each project as a cherished opportunity to work with another extraordinary client in creating their uniquely exquisite dream home. 

Outside of work, Tommy is interested in fitness and health and enjoys spending time outdoors, especially at the beach or at Disney with the family.
