KJZZ is partnering with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers project on the radio. Storytellers in Phoenix share their stories at live events in town. Some of the stories are about living here, some are not.

Wendell Burnette is an architect in Phoenix. He shared his story at a recent night in partnership with Modern Phoenix Week.

He started his own company 19 years ago. Right after he finished building his own home, Wendell’s very first client bought a lot in his neighborhood. The couple had big dreams and wanted Wendell to design them a 4,500-square-foot house.

Wendell Burnette is the CEO of Wendell Burnette Architects in Phoenix.

Hear more stories like this at our next night of live storytelling June 24, 2015, at Mod Co-working Space on Central in Phoenix. To learn more about the Arizona Storytellers project or how to tell your own story, visit
