Cole is a Florida native. He was born and raised in Orlando and graduated from the University of South Florida with a Master's degree in Architecture. His interests involving architecture are broad and varied, but he particularly enjoys focusing on how architecture communicates. He believes that exploring connections between architecture and other art forms is a valuable way of expanding the way he thinks and creates. Cole is applying his creativity to Sweet Sparkman Architects' public work, including Fire Stations.
When Cole is not in the office, he very much enjoys traveling, going to the movies, exercising, and, most of all, spending time with his wife. When he is in the office, he frequently brings his dog, Bella, much to the delight of the staff.
