Jeff started his career as sole proprietor of a restoration business in Burlington, Vermont soon after receiving a BA in Historic Preservation from Mary Washington College in 1996. After moving to Washington D.C in 2004, he worked with a contractor on the exterior restoration of President Lincoln's Cottage and then, as a sole proprietor, completed projects on several local historic homes and sites, including the Decatur House and the south porch of The Old Naval Hospital. Jeff joined the staff at President Lincoln’s Cottage as the site was preparing to open in January 2008. He is tasked with the administration of the preservation department which includes either doing or supervising the ongoing preservation and restoration at the site. In addition to his work at the Cottage, Jeff uses his preservation and project management skills to bring improvements to his community in Baltimore. He serves on the Board of the Charles Village Community Foundation, an organization that provides grants for groups and individuals whose projects will enhance the neighborhood’s quality of life; he is the Vice President of the Friends of the 26th Street Corridor, a community lead organization that worked with the city to successfully turn a portion of 26th street into a park and now manages and maintains the space; and he is a member of the community library's facilities committee where he has performed pro-bono preservation work, developed a cyclical maintenance plan and managed numerous preservation projects to the slate roof, brickwork, interior surfaces, and gardens.
