Joseph Minton has been designing and creating a myriad of beautiful projects from his Fort Worth office for nearly four decades. His medium is as expansive as his style, with dwellings ranging from beach houses on Mission Beach and Sea Island to pent houses on Nob Hill, from apartments on Park Avenue to log cabins on the Taylor River, Snake River and Aspen.
Minton attended The College of William and Mary and received his B.A. and Doctor of Jurisprudence from Southern Methodist University. Joe worked for several years as a City Attorney for the city of Fort Worth. As 1st Lieutenant in the United States Air Force, he served as Personnel Officer in England for several years. Living abroad sparked a craving for European antiques, collectibles and design, which could not be satisfied with a desk job.
