Bio

Erich Connell has had an inherent interest in solving problems from an early age. What started with building forts, redesigning a bicycle, and creating a behind-the-boat submarine matured into creating a new architectural font, customizing logos and design, and working toward creating the best quality product whenever applicable. He is now serving as the Director, and Professor in the School of Construction + Design.

Erich practiced 10-years as an Architect, working with peers and colleagues that included Irving Phillips, Charles Moore, Ken Yeang, William Peña, Frank Welch, Rodney Hill, Manfred Sabatke, Franz-Joseph Schattner, and Sam Rashkin. He received his doctoral degree in architecture from Texas A&M in 1996.

Erich has lived abroad and in many states in the U.S. Living in Mississippi he appreciates the real music, delicious food and genuine people that he gets to experience on a daily basis!
