Jeff, as an AE7 principal, is responsible for the day-to-day management and seamless functioning of our offices. His ability to coordinate multiple offices is evident through his strategic implementation of management procedures, delegation of responsibilities to key members, and his ability to make sound decisions, which makes him a valuable asset to AE7 operations. Jeff’s ability to manage operations and coordinate teams and offices comes from his project management experience with Hi-tech, Healthcare and Education market sectors. His primary focus was in education, from primary schools to tertiary institutions. His knowledge and insight was developed from both an architectural practitioner as well as a teaching faculty member at a university for nine years.

Prior to AE7, Jeff was one of the founding Principals of Burt Hill Dubai and was responsible for successfully starting, managing and operating two design offices and six site offices; he also served as head of operations for the UAE offices.
