Our Team

Marlon D. Lynn, PA
Architect – Florida Principal | Owner

Though born elsewhere, Marlon grew up in Haines City, and considers the Sunshine State his home. During his teenage years and early adulthood, Marlon, with the help of his father, built and raced stock cars, and continues to enjoy tinkering with mechanical things. While in high school, his summers were spent working in construction where he gained a fondness for fashioning things by hand.

Following high school, Marlon moved on to the University of Florida, where he earned both his undergraduate and graduate degrees and remains a dedicated Gator fan. Between his undergraduate and graduate work, Marlon studied European architectural design in Italy, and served as the architectural consultant on an archeological dig in Peru.

Marlon, with wife Katrina and their three children, are active in the Lakeland community and in their church.
