Jeff, a native of the Kansas City, Missouri, area, earned his bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of Kansas School of Architecture and Urban Design. During his studies at the University of Kansas, he was awarded a scholarship to study at the School of Architecture at the University of Dortmund in Dortmund, Germany. There, he was able to further pursue his interest in how buildings are put together. He thrives on the details of the building and believes details are the essence of the building design. He strongly believes in keeping the firm and himself updated on technology and building materials.
Jeff is a registered architect with the State of Arkansas. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects and the National Council of Architectural Registration Board.
Jeff has another passion: oil painting. Many people ask him what he likes to paint and, for him, it isn’t so much about the end product as it is about the process. With his paintings, he explores three-dimensional space through the use of vibrant color and lines. He gravitates to designs by Miller Hull Architects in Seattle, Washington, because of their innovative use of materials. Alberto Giacometti and Amsel Keifer are both painters who Jeff looks to for inspiration with art.
