Jon loves the challenge of SmithGroup’s integrated design, engineering and construction projects. “I enjoy the collaboration and discoveries that occur when professionals from different disciplines and perspectives come together to creatively solve problems,” he says.  Communication is key, Jon explains—understanding the client’s goals, sharing strategies, getting feedback, adjusting, and “ultimately seeking alignment so we can share a common approach.” Hiking in the hills around San Francisco Bay “opens my mind to possibilities and gets the creative juices flowing,” says Jon. He’s also inspired by the creativity found in science fiction books and movies and wouldn’t mind getting a glimpse of the future himself. “I love seeing how writers, film directors and artists depict near future human civilization and technology,” he muses.
