With almost thirty years of experience, Jason draws upon his thorough understanding of the creative process to communicate design concepts clearly and concisely. As the Director of Design, Jason is a mentor and collaborator, believing in the power of collective group efforts to produce and accomplish extraordinary outcomes.
Jason holds a degree in Landscape Architecture from Washington State University and is a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects. He was born in Vermont, raised in Virginia and has lived in the Northeast, Northwest, Midwest and Colorado. In a previous life, he owned and operated a maple syrup farm. Jason’s experience includes a large variety of landscape architecture and planning projects differing in type and scale for public and private clients across the world. His international project experience provides him with a global perspective that helps inform his work locally.
He believes every project provides the chance to meet a new client with a unique set of challenges that can be turned into opportunities. He is happiest when elbow deep in trace paper, developing design concepts that delicately fit a project program onto a site. Jason’s approach to design is a blend of art, science, and nature.
"Patagonia and The Nature Conservancy for their commitment to preservation of the natural environment. Both companies are constantly evolving to meet current challenges and pushing the envelope of conventional norms." - Jason
