As a Business Development Leader for the Justice+Civic Studio, Jeff connects the expertise and resources of DLR Group’s talented design team to clients and agencies. In addition to bringing people together, Jeff is also acutely aware of how economic, social, and political factors impact his clients and the decisions they must make.

"Understanding the relationship of justice design in public safety, courts, and corrections/detention projects is valuable in helping communities achieve their goals to reduce recidivism and assist citizens with mental health resources. This is also our shared focus on healing, equity, and transformation of individuals and communities."

Jeff is also involved in leadership roles for the Performance Based Building Coalition, a consortium of entities focused on education for social infrastructure public-private-partnerships. He is a member of the AIA Academy of Architecture for Justice Partners Committee and is an Associate Design-Build Institute of America member.
