Jon is a skilled urban planner and project manager, specializing in directing campus master planning projects for colleges and universities throughout the country. As a campus planner and designer, he brings a strong background on land use planning, urban design, and livable transportation. He excels and relishes in meaningful and constructive public outreach and collaborative decision-making. He has the spirit of an activist, which helps shape his design and decision-making process. "When I plan a campus or a community, I anticipate the plan’s impacts on those who aren’t at the table," he notes. "I often imagine a difficult decision— and, more importantly, how it was made—on the front page of the newspaper. If the decision can withstand full sunshine, then it is the right one."
