Long spent the first 6 years of his career as a mechanical engineer at Plus Group CE in New York City and then as an associate at Newcomb & Boyd in Atlanta. He has been an integral member of Jordan & Skala's engineering design team since joining the firm in February 2012. In his current role, he is responsible for the design of mechanical systems for complex developments, including high-rise residential, health care facilities, laboratories, senior living, and universities. His portfolio also includes correctional facilities, cold-storage facilities, Atlanta's first urban marketplace at the Krog Street Market, museums, church modifications, and even Amazon sorting facilities located across the U.S. As a Fox Theatre Preservation Committee member, Long collaborates with other professionals in the architectural, engineering, and construction industries to review the historic theater's renovation and expansion plans and ensure the continued architectural significance of its nearly 90-year legacy. Long was involved on the Candler Park Neighborhood Organization's (CPNO) executive board. He served as the environmental chair and on the zoning committee for the CPNO, where he combined his love for sustainability and his LEED expertise to benefit his local community. As a member of a small but growing community of University of Georgia engineering graduates, he regularly returns to his alma mater to speak to engineering classes. Long has renovated the last three homes he has lived in and has so many ideas on any given day that his wife gifted him with a notebook to capture them all. He is a fan of all things art including architecture, live theater, and music. He loves to hike and camp. However, with three young children, he does not get to spend as much time out under the stars as he used to.
