CJ joined Grissim Metz Andriese Associates in 2019, after working as a project manager at a well respected landscape architecture firm in Reston, VA. During his tenure there, CJ led projects through all phases of design for a variety of project types, including commercial, multifamily, parks & recreation and campus master planning.
At GMA, CJ's primary responsibilities include design and production of construction drawings and details. His professional strengths include communication between internal project team members, clients, sub-contractors and other disciplines.
CJ also holds professional registration as a Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) through the National Recreation and Parks Association. This registration permits CJ to review and design playgrounds to ensure compliance with the latest local, state and national codes. This expertise has been applied on a wide range of projects constructed across the country, including playgrounds at the Denver Premier Outlets in Denver, CO and the Home Depot Backyard at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.
In 2022, CJ was commended by the firm's leadership and promoted to Associate.
