About Us

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.
