Nicole Thompson, President, ALA, NCARB

I graduated from University of Wisconsin with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design. From there I moved on to the University of Maryland to earn a Master’s in Architecture. These two majors have given me the blessing to enjoy this job. Working at Station 19 Architects since 1999, my favorite aspect is serving our clients by creating a facility that best meets their vision and mission. I really enjoy listening to their unique needs and getting to know them, because no two projects are the same! Things I like to do for fun are hanging with my family, taking photos, and being my kids’ number one fan by cheering them on in their sport activities. Finally, if I could travel anywhere in the world, I would love to go back to Paris, France, to sketch and drink café au lait.


Ann Kuntz, Principal, Associate ALA

I was an Interior Design student for two years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and from there I attended the University of Minnesota for five years to receive my Bachelor’s degree in Architecture. I have been working at Station 19 Architects for over 25 years and have learned a lot of things along the way. I would say that my favorite aspect of my job is being able to bring order to the chaos and figuring out how we can improve things. When I am not working, I love reading and cooking, watching movies, boating with my husband and daughter, antiquing with my sister, and going for walks with my husband! If I could go anywhere in the world, I would want to go to Europe, specifically France, Italy, and Greece to see the beginnings of architecture and taste the great food.


Tom Peterson, Principal, ALA, NCARB

After studying Landscape Architecture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I continued my education at the University of Minnesota with an undergrad and graduate degree in Architecture. I landed at Station 19 Architects in 1993 and I’m still going strong! I love working with people and discovering how we create a good solution together to any situation. The call to serve the church, with work that can stand the test of time (and eternity) is truly a blessing! Beyond work, my hobbies include, walking around in the woods and city, and going swimming. I love to tinker with stuff which helps keep my 1920’s Bungalow home in shape! Out of anywhere in the world, I would love to return to England with my wife and son to visit gardens, museums, and restaurants.


Cristina Earley, Associate Partner, Interior Designer, CID

I attended Maryville University in St Louis and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design. I had the privilege of being a part of Station 19 from 2007-2009 and was excited to rejoin this creative team in 2015. I love being able to help our clients find creative solutions and design spaces that will enhance their ministry. There is so much variety in how to accomplish this and in the work itself which makes each day a new and interesting puzzle. For fun I enjoy cooking, watching movies, taking pictures, painting, and playing outside with my family. If I could travel anywhere, I would visit Egypt to explore ancient structures and art, sample interesting foods, and ride a camel in the desert.


Dan Torgerson, Associate Partner, Architect, ALA, NCARB, LEED GA

I grew up in Andover, MN and I currently live in Ramsey, MN. I have a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Master of Architecture from the University of Minnesota. My favorite part of working at Station 19 Architects is working on all aspects of the projects from conception to construction completion. I like the workspaces in the repurposed fire station as well. In my free time, when I'm not chasing my three children and entertaining them, I like convincing my wife to attend professional baseball or football events, doing projects around my home or fishing...although currently my outdoor activities are bike rides or walks.


Mandy McCulley, Architect, ALA, NCARB

I earned my Bachelor’s in Architecture at Iowa State University in 2010 and joined Station 19 Architects in 2015. My favorite part of the job is the opportunity to build new and lasting relationships with clients and co-workers, and to see ministries flourish in spaces we work together to create. Outside of the office I enjoy knitting, trying to cook everything from scratch, and exploring new places and restaurants. My dream vacation would either be to travel through France, Germany, and Eastern Europe visiting cathedrals and art museums or experiencing a completely different culture through a tour of China or maybe Thailand.


Kelly Murphy, Architect, ALA, NCARB

I went to the University of Minnesota and received my Bachelor of Science in Architecture, followed by a Master of Architecture. I began my time at Station 19 in 2014 and have been able to enjoy watching a project grow and evolve from the beginning to completion. This is one of my favorite parts to working here, along with the fact that no two days are the same. I am doing different tasks, working on different projects, and getting to experience a variety of things; I cannot believe I get to draw and use my creativity for a living! Beyond work, I love doing DIY projects and anything that is hands on. I enjoy trying new recipes and restaurants, and lastly, I enjoy golfing. If I could go anywhere in the world, I would go to New Zealand.


Josh Brellenthin, Architectural Designer

I received my Bachelor of Design in Architecture from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in 2016 followed by a Master of Architecture in 2021. Besides being able to work with amazing co-workers at Station 19, my favorite part of the job is having a dynamic back-and-forth exchange with clients that inspires each project to grow and evolve. In my free time, I enjoy watching documentaries, playing strategy computer games, and venturing up north to hike and marvel at Lake Superior. It would be a dream come true to visit Rome and observe the same architecture as people from antiquity. The history and culture of the Roman Empire has always had a special place in my heart.


Gabriella Toquam, Architectural Designer

I completed my Bachelor of Science in Architecture at North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND in 2021 followed by a Master of Architecture in Spring of 2022. My favorite part of working at Station 19 is diving deep into each part of the holistic process of bringing an idea to a built design to create purposeful spaces for people to encounter Christ. I am incredibly grateful I get to explore this part of architecture while learning from such an amazing group of coworkers. Outside of the office, art has always been a large part of my life. I enjoy watercolor painting and pen and ink sketching. I also enjoy spending quality time with my friends whether that’s playing video games, board games, or doing a new activity around the Twin Cities. If I could travel anywhere, I would absolutely love to go back to Norway. I studied abroad there for a year in high school and am eager to revisit the place and the people I met. I would also love to take a trip to Japan to experience a distinctly different culture.
