Jason Ritter-Lopatowski

San Diego, CA, US



I was born in 1982 and grew up in Bloomfield Hills and West Bloomfield, Michigan. At the age of 10, I moved to San Diego with my mother and stepfather. After attending school in Poway, I moved back to Michigan in 2000 to begin my studies in architecture.  I went to Lawrence Technological University, in Southfield, MI,  where I studied and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture.  After completing my undergraduate degree, I moved back to California to study at the University of Southern California. While attending school in Los Angeles, I worked at Perkins + Will.  I graduated with a Masters of Architecture, a Masters of Building Science, and a Graduate Certificate in Historic Preservation.  In 2007 my wife, Gretchen, and I moved to San Diego where we currently reside.

For fun, I like to rock climb with close friends and backpack with my wife and dog.  When the temperature drops you will find me in the mountains skiing.  When not outside enjoying the backcountry, you can find me doing woodwork in my garage or cooking up a storm in my kitchen.
