Dean Cochenour – Design Visualization Specialist
Originally from Chicago, my family moved us out to Arizona in the mid 70’s. At the time there was only one freeway and a lot of orange groves (where did they all go)!? Following in my grandfather’s footsteps creating & designing things from scratch, I thought that was a pretty cool profession. Working in the Architectural industry since High school, drafting, planning & developing projects was where I cut my teeth in all aspects of Architecture. I’ve lived between So. Cal. & the Valley for years in the Architectural industry, I found my calling in Architectural Design, 3d renderings & animations. I moved out to Phoenix permanently in the early 2000’s and working for several firms and just not finding the right fit until BDG. It’s here at BDG that it has all come together, a great environment, in and out of the office, great projects. When I’m not in the office, I’m usually out traveling, scuba diving or golfing at some exotic or tropical destination. Locally, you’d find me at an alehouse or brewery perhaps giving me motivation to brew something tasty.
