Jonathan graduated with an M.Arch from Rice University in 2007, and earned his B.S. Design & Environmental Analysis from Cornell University in 2003.  He is a LEED AP and has previously worked at Morris Architects in Houston.  Before coming to Houston, he toured the East Coast with his punk band between 1997 and 2003, and has dabbled in artwork for other musicians.  As a designer, he is committed to using a broad-based and diverse set of social science and design methodologies to understand how the planning, design, and management of the built environment affects individuals, groups, organizations, and communities; and using this knowledge to generate innovative design solutions to pressing social and cultural issues.  Through his work on sustainable design and development, he is also committed to examining and developing designs that contribute to the health of the environment, as well as those inhabiting it.
