Jim’s work bridges two cultures and two worlds of expertise. After training and working as an architect in the States and earning his MBA in France, he joined STUDIOS as a finance manager. An impromptu sketch session led to more, and the rest is history. Jim is well known for leading breakthrough architecture and design, made possible by a strong ability to build consensus across diverse points of view. Whether working in the US or France, collaborating with a client or staff, taking on a highly visible museum project or a modest city building, his goal is always the same: help people thrive, succeed, and grow.
Since joining STUDIOS in 1996, Jim has managed expansive teams for diverse programs and major international clients. His instinct for applying technology to the architectural process, and streamlining project communication and output, has enabled him to successfully lead many of the most ambitious projects in STUDIOS’ history.
