Summer is in full swing and we are excited to welcome the newest class of interns along with two new Overlanders to our family! Passionate and talented individuals come to Overland from around the world to learn, exchange ideas, and share in one another’s culture. Here’s a quick introduction to our newest additions.
Architectural Designer, LEED GA
My journey thus far takes me from Central Texas, through school in Oklahoma, and, very recently, to a new Pheasant position here with Overland! After searching far and wide for offices that embodied the principles of “great people and great work,” a stellar recommendation from a former Pheasant drew me immediately to Overland and San Antonio. As a fresh, young designer, I am most looking forward to getting my hands dirty by working alongside experienced teammates to develop a project all the way through. I enjoy learning, building skills, and just wandering (both in a literal and figurative sense), so I am currently loving this jarring experience of moving to this new and rapidly changing city alongside my fresh start in the office. Thus far I am amazed at the places I can get to on my bike and my own two legs! While I get my feet set under me, I am exploring the various ways I can best plug into the office and the city.
Ideation / Strategic / Activator / Achiever / Futuristic
After completing undergrad at the University of Virginia, I headed south to Clemson for her March before venturing down to San Antonio. I am is interested in how architecture reacts to context, formulating a response to existing physical and social conditions in a way that strengthens place and people. This interest was born out of my experience while part of a small group of students from that worked closely with a small coal town in Virginia that had lost two-thirds of their downtown to a flood management project. While the teen center we designed was stalled by politics, it taught me how essential trust, proactive communication with stakeholders and team management are to the success of any project, built or unbuilt. Initially, I was drawn to work at Overland because of their work, but soon I realized what makes Overland so special is the focus on people and communities rather than a commitment to a certain aesthetic. I am most excited about working with people who are passionate about what they do! During my free time, I love discovering new places whether it be in a different country or my own neighborhood. I also enjoy reading, cooking and spending time outside. My secret talent is moving long distances in small cars.

University of Minnesota – Minneapolis, Undergraduate
My name is Anthony Cauthorn. I’m currently pursuing a degree in Architecture with a minor in Art. I am most excited about learning from the professionals at Overland about architecture. I want to learn as much as I possibly can over the summer during my internship. I really enjoy fantasy adventures stories. I have invented a fantasy world called ‘Telerian’ that is well-mapped! I periodically write short stories set in this world and I have a large collection of hand-drawn maps detailing its geography and political boundaries.

Judson University, Graduate
I recently graduated from Judson University with a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture. This year I’m really excited to work for Overland because of the collaborative office culture. Having friendly collaboration around me is energizing and radically different from what I’m used to. I look forward to the anticipation of something exciting and the satisfaction of something accomplished. I’m a travel, outdoors, and animal loving person. The strangest pet I’ve had was when I was fourteen I buckled under peer pressure and got a pet goose. It was a trend.
Achiever / Individualization / Command / Strategic / Communication
Texas Tech, Undergraduate
My name is Hector Camacho, I was born in Mexico City, Mexico. I moved here to San Antonio around 9 years ago. I’m very excited to have the opportunity of being part of Overland for the summer and try my best to learn as much as I can while I’m here. Besides architecture, I like to spend time playing tennis and soccer, watching movies, and listening to music.

The University of Texas at Austin, Undergraduate
I am currently going into my Junior year at the University of Texas at Austin. I am studying Rhetoric and Writing in the LAH program, and I am going to try to double major in Communications. I am excited about the open but hard-working environment at Overland, and I look forward to all that I will learn and gain from this experience. I really enjoy stimulating conversation, being with fun, creative people, and music. I love playing and watching sports. I like to play the piano when I am stressed. I love to learn about history, and I like any and all music. I like being outdoors as much as possible.
