Jason’s passion for architecture began as a child, sketching cityscapes on scrap paper. He once used Monopoly pieces to create a model of his great aunt’s house—a project that earned him design fees in the form of hard candy. While it’s easy to assume his upbringing in Columbus, Indiana inspired Jason to work in the built environment, it had more to do with “the opportunity to be a public steward and make things better.” Throughout his career—which includes more than 17 years in the public sector—Jason has followed that opportunity.
Having worked at the city and state level, Jason communicates effectively with both constituents and officials while facilitating solutions. An empathic, service-oriented leader, he connects with the values of CORE and the missions of our clients.
Jason spends a lot of time with his kids, whether supporting their dance, martial arts, choir and robotics activities at IPS or simply playing games or enjoying nature with them. To relax, Jason likes to “find a beach, set up a hammock in the woods, or find a spot at Victory Field to enjoy a hot dog, a sweet tea, and a baseball game.”
One of Indianapolis Business Journal’s 2017 “40 Under 40,” Jason has received the AIA Indiana Edward D. Pierre Award for Service to the Architectural Profession, the AIA Indiana Young Architect Award, the Indianapolis Mayor’s Performance Award and Recognition from the Director of Indiana Department of Homeland Security.
