who we are

We are one firm in two locations – Kansas City, Missouri and Omaha, Nebraska – bringing creativity, innovative problem-solving, and decades of combined experience to every project. We draw from a breadth of experiences and influences, yet we all are drawn to a dynamic culture of sharing and learning from many points of view. Our studio environment fosters an interactive process that’s both creative, enjoyable, and always inspiring.


We bring energy, humility, and resilience to work each day. We work hard, and balance our efforts with a healthy dose of fun, by coming together to celebrate professional accomplishments and life’s milestones.

We also join forces to support causes dear to our hearts, as individuals and as a firm. No one embodied this spirit of giving back to our community more than SAI’s longtime employee, Marj Hicks, who passed away in 2017. We continue to honor her memory and civic spirit through our continued support and involvement with causes she cared about.
