The Team

Byrd Design and Build's team of experienced and motivated contractors come second to none. We pride ourselves in treating your remodel as if it is one of our own. Our combined experience in the industry allows us to tackle any project no matter how unique of a situation it may be.

Rick Byrd | Owner and Principal Designer of Byrd Design and Build

Rick Byrd

Owner, Principal Designer

He began his business to allow his passion for home design to benefit others. He discovered this passion while attending MICA in Baltimore, MD. Through an Architectural Design program and an apprenticeship with a local contractor, he realized what was missing was a bridge between the two. Unlike larger companies who send salespeople, at Byrd Design & Build, you will meet with a principal who will be intimately involved until the project is complete.

Darren Greene

Director of Project Management

Darren Greene joined the Byrd Design and Build team in the Spring of 2015, bringing with him over five years of contracting knowledge and three years of Sales/Project Management experience. A Baltimore native, Darren continues to find ways to refine his own skills while pushing the build team to finish projects with an attention to detail and in a timely manner. He is the ideal project manager for any size job.

Jessica Bolles

Lead Designer

Jessica, our in house Interior Designer, joined our team in 2017, bringing with her a passion to give life back to all interiors that had once seen better days. Yes, even those grey and pink 1950s’ bathrooms can be transformed to a contemporary space you can brag about to all of your friends.

Graduating with honors from The Art Institute of York, Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Interior Design, Jessica compliments our close knit team with an eye for detail. She accompanies all of our clients to our suppliers’ showrooms to bring your vision to life. Look forward to walking around granite slab yards, exploring a wide variety of tile aisles, selecting beautiful plumbing fixtures and much more. We want your experience to be as unique as your project! Our team is up to the challenge of bringing your Pinterest boards to life.

Matt Torr

Operations Manager

Matt began his journey with Byrd Design and Build, as a Greenhorn, back in 2015 with little construction knowledge. Through the years, Matt’s ability to learn quickly, plus his attention to detail, has allowed him to understand the ins-and-outs of the build process. With a background and passion for photography, Matt also has an eye for design, especially when it comes to tile work!

Matt graduated from Washington College in Chestertown, MD in the spring of 2013, taking with him an eclectic book of knowledge. Now, Matt has stepped away from the building department and is focusing his organizational and business skills towards the office side of things. Matt’s favorite part of working with Byrd Design and Build is the tight-knit team, that provides a relaxed work environment but also the necessary resources to get the job done!
