Welcome Back Bradford!

It’s time to welcome back a familiar face to CMH. Join us in welcoming back our summer intern, Bradford Moore!

Bradford is a Birmingham native and a fourth-year architecture student at Auburn University, returning to CMH Architects, Inc. to join us for another summer internship. She held a student internship position here last summer and says she is excited to be back for another summer before returning to Auburn in the fall. Bradford recently returned from Rome, Italy, where she studied abroad with Auburn University’s College of Architecture, Design, and Construction.

What was your favorite part about studying abroad?

My favorite part about studying abroad was having the opportunity to travel, being exposed to new cultures and seeing works of architecture that I had previously learned about. During four months abroad I was able to travel around Europe and even parts of Asia; visiting Dubai, UAE and New Delhi, India. I am fortunate to have gotten these opportunities, and each experience is one I will never forget.

What do you look forward to most in your fourth year at Auburn University?

I recently was named an Ambassador of Auburn’s College of Architecture, Design, and Construction. In my fourth year, I look forward to being a representative of the CADC to the best of my ability and being more involved within my college.

 Where is your happy place?

Even after traveling all over the world, my happy place rests here in my hometown of Birmingham, AL. I love being at home and spending time with my friends and family. I am a family girl through and through, and I don’t know what I’d ever do without them.

 Tell us more about your family!

The Moore household is never boring! Everyone always has something going on, but we are, somehow, always able to come together for family dinners filled with laughter. They are my biggest supporters in every new adventure I decide to take on. My parents are both from Birmingham originally, making it easy to get together with our entire extended family on a regular basis. I also have two sisters: Mary Katherine,22, and Emily, 15. My older sister Mary Katherine just graduated from Alabama and is getting her MBA before applying to med school. Emily is on the dance team at Mountain Brook and never fails to make us laugh. We are so proud of both of them.

What is your favorite TV Show?

If you know me then you definitely know that my all-time favorite TV show is Friends! It never fails to put me in a good mood, and it is easy to play in the background during long hours in the studio. However, I am currently watching Gilmore Girls for the first time, and it is a close second.

What is your hidden talent?

I don’t think that many people know this, but for 17 years I was a competitive dancer in addition to being on the dance team for my school for 6 years. I miss dancing and wish it was still a part of my life. However, if you’re looking for a more quirky hidden talent… I can wiggle my ears!

What is your favorite thing about CMH?

What I like most about CMH is the people that surround me on a daily basis. Not only were they welcoming and willing to help me learn, but I have the opportunity to work with every person in the firm. There is no strong divide, and each person is equally as involved.


We are very excited to have Bradford back for another Summer! Here is a brief glimpse of where she has been recently.
