As designers, we must embrace our role as protagonists in the built environment.

Jeffrey joined MASS in 2015 and is based in the Boston office. Currently, he is involved with several U.S. projects, publications and research initiatives, including a proposed Center for Deaf Craft and Culture at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC. Previously, Jeffrey initiated 202020, an urban design and research initiative with Adam Sokol Architecture Practice in Buffalo, and worked at Kennedy Violich Architecture in Boston and HHF Architekten in Basel, Switzerland. Jeffrey also collaborates with Council, an issue-based art collective in Paris, and his work has been shown at the Sharjah Biennial, Sao Paulo Biennial, MoMA PS1 as well as published in several journals and edited volumes including Coronagraph, ArchitectureBoston, and Tacet. As one of a small number of culturally Deaf designers practicing architecture, Jeffrey believes that architecture must do more than accommodate varied sensory realities—and ought to imagine, enrich, and celebrate these ways of being. Jeffrey received his Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Princeton in 2008 and Master of Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design in 2014.
