Jeffrey C. O’Brien, AIA


Jeffrey comes from a family of teachers. Raised in Cedar Rapids, Jeffrey spent time exploring nature and learning from the works of John Muir and other naturalists. Today his passion for the outdoors helps him strike a healthy balance with nature in his designs.

He holds a Master’s degree in architecture from Syracuse University, and has extensive knowledge of architectural precedents gathered from his international travels. The firm’s ability to transform the ordinary into something strong and bold is one of the things that initially drew Jeffrey to the Slingshot team.

Outside of the office, Jeffrey enjoys traveling and spending time with his family.
