With his laid-back, affable personality, Jason approaches architecture not only as a means to solve complex problems, but as a fun, creative passion. With eight combined years in the Army and Army Reserves, Jason brings accountability and responsibility to his work. During his service, he specialized in carpentry and masonry, which allowed him a head-start when he would later study architecture. Having worked on several mixed-use projects at Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, he brings to OKW an overlapping toolkit to handle our many diverse projects. With a philosophy that good design can improve people’s lives and a firm conviction that “architectural people are cool,” he is right at home.
What made you want to become an architect: I’ve always enjoyed puzzles and problem-solving and that is something which I feel all good architects need to excel at. I also love the ability of architecture to impact peoples’ lives in meaningful ways.
