Caitlin holds a B.A. in Urban Studies from Brown University and is a doctoral candidate in the Buildings-Landscapes-Cultures track of the architecture program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
She moved to Buffalo to pursue dissertation research on the interconnectedness of community memory and retail spaces within the dynamics of post-World War II neighborhood change. Her approach to architectural history emphasizes the cultural and social meanings of the built environment, and she views historic preservation as an avenue for encouraging others to discover the rich history of buildings, neighborhoods and cultural landscapes in which we all live. Caitlin’s favorite mode of exploring Buffalo involves long, meandering walks with Fritz, the dashing Weimaraner from Wisconsin.
Michael holds a B.A. in Environmental Design with a minor in Architecture from the University of Buffalo. He has previously volunteered at the Buffalo Central Terminal and is a founding member of Buffalo’s Young Preservationists.

In his free time Mike enjoys restoring antiques, doing independent research on Buffalo history, and exploring and documenting Buffalo through his photography.
Derek holds a B.A. in History and Anthropology with a minor in Global Studies from St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY. Though new to the area, Derek is fascinated to see how many beautiful buildings still fill the cityscape, and is excited to be working with Preservation Studios to help ensure these historic places remain part of the Buffalo community. So far he has enjoyed spending evenings at Gallagher Beach, and weekends getting lost while looking for the restaurants and cafes locals have suggested.
