Jed found his love of Architecture through the rich Art Deco and mid-century buildings in his previous hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is an experienced project architect who has the ability to solve complex problems with creative and appropriate solutions. He has 19 years of experience working on many project types including historic preservation, multi-family residential, tenant improvement and education. While excelling at design, he also believes that the architect’s job is critical during construction and loves the process of working with clients and contractors from the time of developing the initial concept through the delivery of a completed building.
Jed earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree at Oklahoma State University in 1999 and practiced architecture in Tulsa until relocating to Bellingham in 2017. While living and working in Tulsa, Jed actively supported and served on the board for several local non-profits and was an active member of the community. He looks forward to becoming fully engaged in the Bellingham and surrounding communities through his work with Zervas as well as volunteer opportunities.

He is excited to be contributing to the rich fabric of Washington and the Northwest.
