“Design is an exercise in unpacking the understanding of what we don’t know.”
Jason is in charge of business development and leads MCG’s Aviation Studio. He also assists with housing, commercial and educational facilities as Director of Sustainability. He brings a strong commitment to sustainability to the firm and enjoys the beauty and connectedness of nature and structure. Jason lived and worked in Germany for six years, giving him great insight into alternative perspectives toward design. This experience showed him the value of human experience over cost and speed in designing long-lasting, healthy projects for people.
While working under Gunter Pfeifer, Jason studied “Cybernetics and Structure,” a relationship between the part and the whole of cybernetic nature. This expresses the structural peculiarities of all participating systems (physical, biological, and technical attributes) which relate to each other in a symbiotic relationship.
Serving the community both professionally and as a volunteer through various non-profit organizations, Jason dedicates his work to the development of sustainable building practices. His goal is to reconnect indigenous design with modern innovations, seeking cost-effective solutions, and creating healthy environments that are energy-efficient. The intent over time is to eliminate negative environmental impacts and build sustainable communities.

Jason’s a passionate “Million Miler,” so working on this state-of-the-art facility, providing critical infrastructure was a dream come true. His greatest memory about this project was a group of people who brought it together, including the client, the design team, and the incredible employees at Alaska Airlines
“There is no measuring with time, no year matters, and ten years are nothing. Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force its sap and stands confident in the storms of spring without fear that after them may come no summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke
Outside the Office
When away from work, Jason enjoys spending time with his 3 beloved children, of which being a father is his greatest achievement. He also enjoys playing sports and exploring the wilderness. He is a dedicated student of foreign languages, spends a lot of creative time in the kitchen, and is passionate about travel. If you can’t find him… he’s most likely on an airplane
