“We’re driven to positively impact people’s lives, and have the unique and serious responsibility to influence how people live, work and play. We do this by putting people at the center of the decisions we make and the solutions we develop as architects and designers.”

A native Pittsburgher, Jeff’s passion for the profession led him to New York City after graduation.

As a Managing Principal of the Pittsburgh studio, Jeff leads workplace, commercial office, and mixed-use projects in the greater Pittsburgh region and supports the entire practice. With more than 23 years of experience, he is adept at integrating large teams, clarifying client goals, facilitating communication, and achieving regulatory approvals all while sustaining accelerated time-lines and budgets. Throughout his career, he has led and provided design leadership for numerous public and private sector projects of varying scales.
