The East Troublesome fire acted like a blow torch that October day, wiping out nearly 200,000 acres in the community. Principal J. Scott Munn and his family evacuated for 10 days from their greater Grand Lake home. His home survived, but many sadly were left without. The devastation of the fire hit even harder as some who lost their homes began efforts to plan the next phase and discovered that insurance companies were not providing adequate replacement values for their homes.
MA Studios has set out to help, providing free foundation drawings when applicable, while doing what he can to help his community rebuild. It is the same community where he spent every summer of his young life and where he has lived appreciatively in his adult life. It is the community where he chooses to raise his young family — the community he loves, respects and supports.
"Simply put, for what we do now matters most."
MA Studios maintains it’s the current of compassion, dedication, community, sustainability and movement that will set the course for the near future and for our next generation. Taking cues from nature, it's our own regeneration.
It is this trajectory MA Studio takes to his profession every day, in every detail. It is how he leads his firm.
Simply put, for what we do now is what matters most.
