Native to Tulsa, Oklahoma, but raised in Northwest Arkansas, Josh returned to his roots to receive his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Oklahoma State University. While studying architecture and design in college, Josh simultaneously pursued filmmaking roles, gaining experience on various awarded short and feature-length films across Oklahoma and Arkansas. This broadened his design thinking, allowing him to better understand the importance of efficiency and perception, and teaching him to keep just enough of a competitive spirit to keep design fun.
At Zervas, Josh brings his photographic skillset and image-based mindset to innovate and intuit high-level design. He is developing his architectural literacy with the high-level architects alongside him, and is working toward licensure.
Amrit grew up in Mumbai, India and received her Bachelors Degree in Architecture from Dr. D.Y. Patil College of Architecture in Mumbai. Post this, she earned her Masters Degree in Architecture from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Amrit decided to leave behind the cornfields in the Midwest to move to the Pacific Northwest to be closer to her family. She is a licensed Architect in India and is on the path to pursue her licensure in the United States as well.
Amrit developed an interest in sensory based design of educational facilities which resulted in her undergraduate thesis on “Center for Autism”. She has also previously worked on design and construction aspects of K-12 schools in Illinois during her graduate student internship. She is an associate AIA and has received her LEED – GA Sustainability certification as well.
When Amrit is not designing buildings, she loves making digital sketches and cleaning her apartment. She is a former National Level Volleyball player and enjoys outdoor activities.
Joining as an Intern Architect, it is her strong conviction that through her ingenuity, expertise, and conscientious work ethic, she will add great value to the Zervas family.
