Nestor Melnyk, AIA LEED AP BD+C

University of Cincinnati | Bachelor of Architecture
University of Cincinnati | Masters of Arts

Nestor is driven by a sense of duty and obligation and is inspired by good, solid, clean design that is neither trendy nor stylistic. It’s a mix that enables him to over deliver time and again. His ability to see beauty in unpretentious, timeless quality and seeing what he does as a reflection of himself, makes him an MSA cornerstone. Therefore Nestor does a little bit of everything – some days he’s in the office focused on project-specific issues, other days he’s coordinating work and work efforts, and still others he is out and about meeting with various people, gathering information and making things happen.

Nestor’s personal drive extends outside the office into the realm of advocacy and philanthropy. An advocate for children’s disabilities issues and a huge supporter of Angelman Syndrome awareness and research through the Foundation for Angelman Sydrome Theraputics www.cureangelman.org (Team member of Miles for Smiles www.miles-for-smiles.org running for research) and the Angelman Syndrome Foundation www.angelman.org. But he’s not all business, in the evening you might find him sharing buttered popcorn and a good independent film with his wife at the Esquire Theater. Or perhaps enjoying a meal or drink at one of the many one-of-a-kind neighborhood places like The Littlefield, Habanero, ¬†Tacacracy – even Camp Washington Chili.
