With over 18 years of architectural experience, Jack has become an integral part of the success of many projects for EskewDumezRipple. Jack received his Master of Architecture degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2005 and joined the firm as a Project Architect and Project Manager quickly after.

With an ever-consistent eye on budgets, deadlines, and regulatory approvals, Jack continues to push the creative envelope on each project he approaches and still handles project pressures with ease. Jack notable work on the 930 Poydras Residential Tower and the subsequent small-scale ground floor restaurants has resulted in a highly successful overall development that has reinvigorated the surrounding neighborhood.
