Jeff believes great design is born from strong partnerships and excellent organization. He loves empowering clients to bring their visions and ideas to life through close collaboration and open communication.

In 2011, Jeff founded Board & Vellum with the goal of being one of the best places to work, not just in Seattle, but in the United States. His vision has evolved into a positive, ego-free environment for employees and clients alike.

Jeff previously served as chair of the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce and continues to find new ways to connect with and give back to the community that supports Board & Vellum.
