Senior Designer
Santa Fe, NM, USA

Garron joined MASS Design Group as a Senior Designer in 2022 through MASS’s strategic partnership with AOS Architects, where he was employed for nine years. Garron was born and raised in New Mexico and brings his cultural and regional knowledge to every architectural project. As the son of a Navajo (Dine) mother, and a Jemez Pueblo (Towa) father Garron has a unique perspective on architecture and design. Being a fluent Towa speaker has given him insight into another way of describing the world around him. He has continued his learning with extended stays in New Hampshire, Alaska, and New York City - always returning home to restore his grounding in his communities. He has worked on a wide range of projects including commercial interiors, affordable housing, hospitality, and historic preservation.

Garron has a dual Bachelor of Arts degree in Engineering and Native American Studies from Dartmouth College and a Master of Architecture from the University of New Mexico. Garron currently sits on the board of directors of Cornerstones Community Partnerships and is a member of the Cultural Properties Review Committee of the New Mexico State Historic Preservation Office.
