4 Questions with Jace

How do you kick-off a productive morning?

First thing I do in the morning is get a small workout in to get my mind and body right for the day. Then, I walk my dog before heading to work.

What is your favorite place anywhere and why?

Definitely Lake Tahoe, Nevada. From the mystical features of the water and the snow-covered mountains to the color of the leaves in early fall, there’s nowhere else on Earth I’ve been that’s like it.

What was your first job?

My first job was working on my grandfather’s almond farm in Ripon, California. Not only did this teach me about the essentials of working your own land, but I also learned how our food supply gets from farm to fork, and all the processes in between.

Why are you so passionate about placemaking?

We interact with various forms of real estate daily, be it our homes, workplaces, shopping centers, or even the roads we traverse. Having a hand in shaping these spaces, which touch nearly every aspect of an individual’s daily life, ignites a profound passion for placemaking in me.
