Jason Seickel

Environmental Designer

Following his undergraduate degree in education, Jason used his background in architecture, construction, and gardening to develop environmental studies curriculums in Florida.  Procuring several grants, Jason, along with his students, successfully built award winning and recognized projects including an inner-city school garden where students could see the “fruits” of their labor.  After teaching and involvement in educational leadership for 9 years, Jason went back to school for his MLA at the University of Florida.  Specializing in designing for social equality, Jason provides unique perspectives on research and design.  Jason has a passion for hiking, camping, and playing with his kids.

Why I love this work

The design of space can have huge implications for how we interact with the world around us.  I like knowing I can help, in some small way, to improve our interactions with our environment.
