He successfully completed their Pre-Medicine program and graduated with certification as a single-source instructor for Secondary Education in Biology. Upon graduation, he accepted an offer to train for the Modern Pentathlon at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. After a career-ending injury in an Equestrian Event, Christian entered the University of Oklahoma’s College of Architecture where in 1998, he graduated top in his class with a Master of Architecture Degree.
Since graduation, Christian has spent the last 22 years being intimately involved and dedicated to his clients. Christian has used this non-traditional path to Architecture to work primarily in the Design of Education Environments. His leadership has resulted in the completion of nearly 100 Education projects all throughout the State of Oklahoma, including dozens of Sports Facilities and Complexes.
In the end, Christian understands that the Design and Construction process is temporal. As we at LWPB, do our job well, the facilities we design will be around for future generations to appreciate and to continue to be used as permanent, functional and beautiful buildings. Christian is honored to have this responsibility which is why he is so committed to doing the best possible job for our schools and to continue to be a life-long learner just as our educators instruct.

In his spare time, Jason loves golfing hiking, touring old buildings, and riding anything with a loud engine. We are glad he is a part of our LWPB Team.
Jason Hukill, AIA, LEED AP BD+C
Originally, Angie was brought on for her expertise in government projects and healthcare design. She has extensive experience in programming, space planning, interior architectural design, and FF&E. However, when she was afforded the opportunity to work on a K-12 project, she fell in love. Angie is a public school teacher’s kid – and believes that as designers and school planners, we can devise and craft learning environments that remove barriers and increase flexibility. We can also create learning spaces that can be changed and shaped to support the teaching and learning of the future, empowering teachers to do their best work.
Over the last decade at LWPB, Angie has been given the opportunity to make a difference in her community and in the State of Oklahoma. She is thrilled to have found a niche that speaks to her heart so strongly. With her skill and creativity, Angie is an integral part of our team during all phases of design.

Zach believes that clear communication throughout the entire design process, from the first meeting with the client to the closing out of the project’s construction, is the ultimate key to a project’s successful outcome. He also understands the importance of designing a building that carefully balances the function with creative form to deliver a facility that always strives to exceed the owner’s expectations. Zach relishes the opportunity to gain new relationships with owners while maintaining and growing existing relationships with his long-term clients.
When not at the office, Zach enjoys spending time with his wife Ashley and his family. He loves wakeboarding, camping, and surfing with friends any chance he gets.
Zachary Giddens, AIA

Rebekah has worked in both our OKC and Norman offices – and now nearly exclusively remotely from her family farm. Growing up on her family’s Indian Allotment and working farm instilled a special connection to Oklahoma’s land and people. She loves the opportunity to remain connected to the land and culture as she works and raises her children on their 400 acres.

A team player who goes above and beyond, Greg’s ability to both collaborate and work independently has allowed him to fit well at LWPB. Some of his most noteworthy projects prior to his position at LWPB include the Skirvin Hotel, Premium Beer of Oklahoma Distribution Center, Saxon Publishers and Oklahoma City Rescue Mission. He has consistently administered hundreds of successful projects over the years, and continues to prove himself a valuable member of every team he is apart of.
Greg Yeary, CSI-CDT
Skilled in Revit and 3D modeling, he enjoys opportunities to work on design solutions of all scales. A keen interest in sustainability led to earning LEED certification quickly after graduating from OU.
James lives in Norman with his wife, two children, and their dog Boston. Though he prefers a more metropolitan lifestyle, he delights in escaping to the wilds on the weekends. James enjoys landscape photography, camping, fishing, cars he can’t afford, cooking extravagant meals for his family and hunting for new coffee shops. We are thankful he is part of our LWPB team.
In his time as a systems furniture contractor, Brian designed and built more than 30,000 workstations from all major brands. Notable projects include Vance AFB, Tinker AFB, Continental Resources, Ft. Sill, Merrill Lynch, Dell, Hertz, and AT&T.
Brian is a globe-trotting member of our team, having lived internationally while serving in the Army. He continues to share his love of travel with his family, with a goal of visiting the lower 48 states before his children are grown. He enjoys experiencing new cultures, and seeing how their buildings address the challenges of unique climates and terrains.
Jericho discovered architecture while taking a wood shop class in 7th grade, and began studying architecture at Oklahoma State University with an initial dream of designing his home. He believes “architecture provides an opportunity to create something bigger than myself…a chance to influence the future and people’s day to day living.”
As a student, he had the opportunity to visit Los Angeles, and tour Europe, visiting Rome, Milan, Torino, Barcelona, and London (with London being his favorite). Jericho keeps busy in his spare time, devoting his energy to bike riding, football, basketball, volleyball, and golf, and also enjoys video games and flying his drone. You might just catch some of his drone footage on our Facebook page from time to time!
In his spare time, Jose enjoys spending as much time as he can with his two daughters. He has a passion for writing and filmmaking, and at one time, he made independent films. We are so pleased to have him on our team.
Raymond is also involved in his community, having served in several capacities in his church as well as volunteering for schools and homeless ministries.
She and her husband spend their weekends getting out and exploring Oklahoma. “There are neat gems here that you do not see anywhere else.” She also enjoys reading - especially non-fiction American history books, and video-gaming.
Alex enjoys spending his free time traveling and experiencing nature at various National Parks as well as exploring new cities and their culture.
