Jeff brings over 20 years in urban planning and design to the Danielian team and works in tandem with the architecture studio to bring comprehensive design solutions to each of their unique clients.
While Jeff has worked on a number of projects in China, Mexico, and the Middle East, his primary focus has been crafting and adapting American urban and suburban landscapes to accommodate population growth with form, function, sustainability and resilience as guiding principles.
