He attended the University of Illinois where he graduated and went on to work for several Midwestern firms before moving to San Francisco in 1968. After 13 years of practicing in San Francisco, Veverka returned to graduate school earning a Master of Architecture degree from UC Berkeley, then he taught for three years at California Polytechnic State University. In 1980 Veverka returned to San Francisco, where he worked on managing several large office park projects as an Associate at MBT Associates. Six years later, in 1985, he began his private practice, primarily designing residential and commercial projects in and around the Bay Area. During this time, Veverka also taught perspective drawing through UC Extension. He passed away in April of 2014.
