Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Marques currently resides in Washington, D.C. working as an architectural and urban designer. Marques has a broad view of the world through his professional and educational travels to places like Italy, Africa, and China. In his leisure time he enjoys improving his Italian speaking skills, sketching, and playing the piano or guitar. Some might see a 'Renaissance Man.' But if you ask him he'd say "I'm just a kid from the east side of Detroit."
Terrance, or TJ as we call him, is now 26 years old. That number is significant because not many people have accomplished as much as he has in such little time. Before even reaching the legal age to rent a car, TJ became a published author, a graduate of the University of Michigan, recipient of a Masters in Education, a husband to his love of 6 years, and still makes it home before the street lights come on. TJ currently resides as Nashville, TN with his wife. He works as a 3rd grade teacher by day and is now officially Dr. Terrance Scott! His focus is on the the social implications that physical environments/neighborhoods have on the education of children.
Mr. Andrews is looking to pursue his childhood dream of contributing to the redevelopment of Detroit. As a native of the city, he greatly enjoys and appreciates the European influence, architectural detail and history of Detroit.
His resume includes: four years of Hospitality Business at Michigan State University; chief owner and entrepreneur at The Good Life Collection, LLC - a multi-media production company ranging from photography to website design; Seven years of Property Management experience from new construction, leasing, property management, market analysis, customer service, demographics, fair housing, curb appeal, corporate outreach; and even a working mentor relationship with Detroit's late urban developer Colin Hubbell before his untimely demise.
He feels deeply that Detroit is a beautiful city that is constantly clouded and over shadowed by negative press. His mission is to put his broad experience and skill set to work to help revamp and revitalize his native city.
