At its core, JAMB exists to develop successful collaborative networks while providing a substantial revenue for undertaking social impact initiatives. We connect, support, and open new doors, giving small firms a chance to stay small, act big, and do good.

Christian [of Philadelphia] is the team lead and brings a wealth of knowledge and guidance to the team. He, along with Mike [of Tucson], are principal and owner, respectively, of smaller firms and were, therefore, able to draw on that experience to help inform the challenges and opportunities that smaller firms face. On the opposite end of the table, Desmond [of Atlanta] and Jared [of Philadelphia], both work for larger firms and are able to provide a contrasting perspective. Abi [of Washington, D.C.] brings her advocacy expertise and energy as the Community Director of the Young Architects Forum, and Katie [of Detroit] has an impressive track record of creating start-ups within her business and design backgrounds.
We want small firms to be more successful with a more steady cash flow, serve clients better with a local presence, and land jobs they previously thought were unimaginable. We want clients to realize the advantages of hiring a small firm, with a large, resourceful knowledge-base. The personal attention of a small firm with the capabilities of a large firm. Eventually, the Collective may be comprised of architecture firms, individual architects, designers, developers, contractors, etc.
