Tim Caraboolad - President

While growing up, Tim was immersed in the construction industry. His Father, Geoff Caraboolad, founded Metric Corp. where Tim began working as a teenager. By 2006, he was working full time at Metric as an estimator and project manager. Tim’s development experience started with the management of small multi-family renovations in the Brookline and Newton area. Tim quickly transitioned to being part of the development team on much larger projects.

In 2012, Tim set out on his own, and started Arc Design. In the past three years, Arc Design has completed multiple projects varying in size and functionality. Tim is fully immersed in the process; from development, to interior design, down to picking the final finishes - no detail goes unnoticed. In the recent months, Tim has started to turn more focus onto design and has hired in full service in house interior designers. He has opened up opportunities in Montauk, Aspen, Martha's Vineyard and beyond, and is responsible for the exponential growth Arc Design is experiencing.

Drew Brassard, P.E - Director of Operations

Drew, like Tim, was engaged in the construction industry from an early age. Drew worked on utility construction crews throughout his high school years and eventually rose to a leadership position within his father’s construction company. Originally from Southern New Hampshire, Drew attended Boston College after graduating from Lawrence Academy in Groton, MA. During the college summer months he continued his work in construction management on various projects ranging from overseeing the development and construction of a 250,000 foot-long fiber optic network that connected five Massachusetts colleges, to overseeing interior renovations and the construction of a harbor side swimming pool at a $2M residence on Oahu, Hawaii. 

After graduating from Boston College, Drew enrolled in the Civil Engineering program at the University of New Hampshire, where he earned a B.S. in Engineering. Drew interned at the well respected engineering firm Fay, Spofford & Thorndike while at UNH and later accepted a full-time engineering position at the firm based out of both Burlington and Boston, MA. As a licensed E.I.T., Drew worked on both the design and construction phases of public infrastructure and transportation projects through-out New England with contracts ranging in size from less than $1M to over $200M. Drew became a licensed Professional Engineer in 2013 in the state of NH before coming to work for Tim at Arc Design as Director of Operations in 2014.

Tyler Murphy - Project Manager

With the likes of the other team members, Tyler spent much of his childhood on job sites building homes with his father. Originally from Cape Cod, Tyler went on to attend Bryant University, receiving a degree in Business Management. Tyler later accepted a position at a large general contracting firm in Boston, working on over $300M worth of projects during his time there. His projects ranged from affordable housing community development and hotel construction to institutional science complexes – each bringing a unique set of financial and physical construction challenges. Taking lead roles in estimating, field operations, and project management on these jobs allowed Tyler to gain a holistic perspective for large-scale commercial construction. In an effort to return closer to his roots in residential construction, Tyler began working for Arc Design in 2015 as a Project Manager, constructing a 5,500+ square foot home in Martha’s Vineyard.

Tyler is also a council chair for Boston’s ONEin3 Council, an organization dedicated to connecting Boston’s young adult population with resources related to: housing, entrepreneurship, and civic engagement. Tyler has also taken a lead role in partnering with the Elizabeth Stone House, a local non-profit that serves homeless and at risk families. He has assisted with various construction-related issues as well as facilitating large donations for the organization.

Michela Finnegan - Administration and Creative

Michela comes from a family consisting  of both engineers and creative types, leaving her with an incline to the design aspects of what makes a house a home. She is a recent graduate of Lesley University College of Art and Design, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree majoring in Photography. She has spent most of her life immersed in visual arts and communications. Michela is a northern Massachusetts native, but has spent the past five years living in Boston. 

Coming from a long-term position at a boutique inn, Michela is well versed in interior styling and design, as well as client relations, marketing, and social media. She has vast experience across different creative outlets, including interior photography, website creation and management, as well as designing marketing materials and creating branding content. After spending some time post-college finding a career she was passionate about, Michela returned to her family roots in engineering and design, and entered Arc Design in June of 2015, to become the hub of creativity, and administration.

Recently, Michela has spearheaded interior projects for Arc Design in Aspen, Boston, and Martha's Vineyard, by assisting in design layout, finish picks, and furniture choices.
