Michael’s favorite thing about the mountain, besides those unparalleled views, is the sense of community that continues to be created. “I’m driven by the opportunity to design unique homes to fit the character and lifestyle of each resident. It’s important, on such pristine and exclusive lots, to build a home that functions specifically for the site, as well as for the owner,” stated Michael. “With landowners already from 38 states and several countries, being a part of the creative process to help forge this community is a formidable but very rewarding challenge.”
A graduate of the University of Tennessee with his Bachelor of Architecture. He spent four years designing mountain homes for an award-winning residential architecture firm in Vail, Colorado before relocating to Chattanooga in 2010. Prior to joining Jasper Highlands Homes full time in 2016, Michael designed the Pavilion at Pat’s Summitt, the Gazebodacious, and the Wellness Center and Café.
Michael enjoys meeting with lot owners as they begin to think about building, working with them on the initial design concepts, layout, and styling of the home. Michael is involved in the entire design process and throughout the build. He is there to ensure that the home follows the detail of the plans, answer any questions from the Project Managers, and make the process as smooth as possible for the future homeowners.
His favorite part of the design process, by far, is seeing the excitement on his client's faces once the construction process is complete. Knowing that he helped them create their dream home on the mountain, and to see the fruits of hours of drawings and conversations and sometimes tough decisions – that is the real reward.

Greg is Jasper Highlands Homes’ in-house draftsman. Working closely with the architect and designers, Greg helps to draw the construction documents and revise the plans throughout the design and build process. One of his favorite aspects of the design process is space planning. “I like problem-solving and space planning. Clients bring us floor plans they have clipped from magazines or drawn on a napkin,” said Greg. “However, they just can’t get things to work to their liking. There is always something that they can’t fit in or arrange to their satisfaction. That’s where I come in and assist the team in resolving the problem with a solution that makes their plans unique and their own.”
Greg fits right in with the outdoor culture on Jasper Highlands, he loves hiking with one of his favorite destinations being Alaska where he spent two weeks camping and hiking with friends. So, don’t be surprised to find Greg on the 100 plus miles of hiking trails throughout the mountain.
A graduate of the New York Institute of Technology, Greg graduated magna cum laude in 2012 with his Bachelor of Science in Architecture. Greg continues to hone his craft under the watchful eye of chief architect Michael Bridges and is preparing for the Tennessee Architect licensing process.
