Team - Jacob


Associate AIA, M. Arch

American Institute of Architects (AIA) Associate

Not every client that needs help needs architecture…but every client needs design to make their process a better one! Jacob puts this theory to a test as a volunteer for Fleece and Thank you – a national non-profit that makes and distributes fleece blankets to the needy. There, Jacob has designed PVC carts for the warehouse to create usable space and has set up a podcast studio for “impact” stories.

A military brat who grew up in Fraser, Jacob attended Lawrence Technological University for undergraduate and graduate study, earning his architecture degree in 2021. Jacob is an activist architect who adores giving back.

Organized and adaptable, Jacob makes clients feel comfortable by doing the research necessary in advance (it is a thing we do at DTP) and references past projects to increase the client comfort level and help them explore innovative ideas.

With two triathlons (in 3 months!) under his belt, Jacob is an outdoor force of nature. That passion took him to Northern Michigan and Lake Huron, where he ran, biked, and swam, placing 13th out of fifty-two participants. Not surprisingly, Jacobs takes a daily constitutional.

Jacob is an accidental gymnast. Tagging along while his sister did gymnastics, it was serendipitous when asked to join the men’s team. Jacob has been caught performing on high bars and rings.

Last summer, Jacob traveled to Montana and outside Phoenix where he loves to hike.
