Justin Maine

Principal Designer

Justin holds a Masters Degree in Architecture from Kent State University, where upon graduation in 2007 he began practicing in the profession near his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. His initial focus had him immersed in the field of commercial and healthcare services. After his arrival to Saint Louis, he honed his craft in residential work, primarily working on architectural interiors, and creating well-crafted environments for affluent clients in St. Louis. With Nistenhaus, he looks forward to applying his knowledge and skills to a farther reaching audience, while maintaining the quality he knows everyone deserves to enjoy.

Michael Wyrock

Principal Designer

Mike holds two Masters Degrees from Washington University in St. Louis, both in Architecture and Urban Design. After completing his schooling, he transitioned into a non-traditional role as designer in furniture sales with an emphasis on interior design. The past five years have resulted in a variety of projects and a surprising array of clients, that have included a range of urban to suburban, and young professionals to families. This venture is a continuation of the work he has been fostering within a retail setting, but will allow his creativity to reach a wider depth and greater audience.

Shelly Goodman

Design Associate

Shelly's design background stems from receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communications (combination of graphic design and fine art) from Judson University. On top of that, Shelly has 8+ years experience as a professional photographer. With respect to interior design, she loves 'the hunt' for finding unique pieces - especially when it comes to interesting colors and textures - that make a confident statement. She also loves assisting as needed through each step of a project and seeing an initial design concept evolve into a stylish, finished space. And then, of course, her favorite part is capturing that gorgeous space with her camera.

Marzipan

Shop dog

Mars is a discerning canine, with a pedigree that hails from an ancient region in Japan. She finds herself the perpetual receptionist in the studio space, always making sure the guests not only feel welcome, but know what plush possessions are curated under her watchful eye.

She holds many degrees from various prestigious institutions, which is why she is always consulted on important decisions, and holds the high honor of being the CFO - Chief Fuzzy Officer.
