About Jeff

While growing up, Jeff’s dad could do pretty much anything – from working on cars to woodworking – and he passed this ability on to Jeff.  He still relies on the things he learned from his dad in the course of his job every day.  He also had a great high school drafting teacher who recognized his aptitude for drafting. Starting out as a project architect, Jeff found that he really enjoyed the construction side of architecture – watching the building come to life. But the people involved with those projects are what really drive him. Along the way, Jeff also discovered that he wanted to teach. He combined this with his love of architecture and a desire to mentor the next generation of architects, and has been teaching an architecture class at Texas Tech University for the past 10 years.

Jeff directs HKS’ project delivery methodology, in-house technical education, specification development and construction detail development analysis. He has been involved in design, research, code analysis, environmental study, production and architectural detailing for more than 35 years.
