While some people may spend the majority of their lives figuring out their paths, Jim Lutz remembers saying he wanted to be an architect in the first grade. There was always something about architecture that fascinated him his whole life, and for Jim, pursuing that was a straight path. He received a bachelor's degree in architecture from Syracuse University and then a master's from UC Berkeley, also in architecture. It's just what I love, Jim says. Jim practiced architecture in California for nearly 20 years, the majority of those years working as a partner in a firm doing commercial, residential, and historic preservation projects. He then went on to teach at the University of Memphis where he loves to help and see young people pursue their own passions in the area he himself has built his life around.
