Although Jason spent his childhood building with Lincoln Logs and LEGOs, it wasn’t until he saw his grandfather’s hand-drawn sketches and plans that he began the path toward architecture. As a Master of Architecture from UIC, Jason is driven by the infusion of character and personality into spaces. He takes very seriously the task that architects are given: to design, alter, and ultimately improve someone’s routine. Be it a home or a workspace, the decisions made by architects and designers have broad implications for how our clients will enjoy and engage with the space.
Jason will use this philosophy as a lodestar while working on a range of OKW’s hospitality projects. When he’s not in the office, Jason finds peace and fulfillment by exploring Chicago and training for long-distance races with his wife.
