Jeff’s focus has been on the design and implementation of public places, from urban to rural, at a variety of scales primarily in the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies regions. Jeff is adept at managing complex projects and directing multidisciplinary teams that share a common vision. He has been involved in many projects from their inception; collaborating with clients to develop the program, creating conceptual plans, and implementing the design.
