At the age of 21 he graduated magna cum laude from Arizona State University’s prestigious five-year architecture program. When he was 23 years old he was granted his license to practice architecture, the youngest recipient of an architecture license in the state since the implementation of the NCARB exam process. GLA has continued to thrive under Jan’s steady leadership.
