2022 AIA Large Firm Roundtable ARE Scholarship
Design Associate II at Benham
University of Oklahoma (B.Arch)
My name is Nicholas White, and I was born and raised in Denton, TX to Tommy and Bonita White. From a young age I always had a love for drawing and often took art classes so that I could learn new ways to draw. It was not until high school that I discovered drafting and I knew then and there that I wanted to be an architect. I took a drafting class where we prepared drawings for statewide competitions.
My passion for architecture led me to the University of Oklahoma where I made Architecture my major. While attending the University of Oklahoma I interned at Architects and Roofing Consultants where I was tasked with helping prepare construction documents, travel on site visits and coordinate with outside consultants on project matters.
Upon completing my degree in 2010, I remained at ARC full-time for two more years. I later took a job with REES Associates, and I remained with REES until 2017 when I left to join Benham. It is here that I have gained experience doing various types of government work.
I am married to my beautiful and smart wife, Sonja and we have two children and reside in Yukon, OK.
