"The best ideas come to me when I have pen in hand and trace paper spooled; working with a team representing all disciplines. When all the issues are well communicated and thoroughly understood, ideas come quickly and momentum builds into exciting possibilities."

Jim approaches his work as a steward of the client's vision, and team members rely on him for the precision of process and commitment to quality he brings to every project. He has worked in the Chicago and Seattle offices of DLR Group, and earned the reputation of being a talented project manager and a knowledgeable technical architect with a passion for realizing successful projects on schedule and on budget.

Jim's agile thinking, design approach, and technical expertise have enabled him to complete work on diverse projects across the country since beginning his career in 1998. His work includes workplace headquarters and office spaces; new and existing retail centers; and K-12 schools. He has a deep portfolio of large high school facilities greater than 300,000 SF and a 2,000-student capacity, and has been directly responsible for upholding the promise to elevate the learning experience for thousands of students.
