The mission of the AIA Chapter is to lead the way in promoting the sustainable growth and enhanced quality of life for our community and the architectural profession through advocacy, engaged membership, and collaborative efforts. The chapter serves Manatee, Sarasota, Highlands, Hardee, & Desoto counties.
A project architect at Carlson Studio Architecture (CSA), a Florida-based sustainable design firm, since 2007, Jedd has more than 15 years of professional design experience. He has managed several LEED-certified projects including the recently completed Sun N Fun Lifestyle Wellness Center.
In 1998 Jedd graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in architectural design and a Master’s Degree in Architecture at the University of South Florida, Tampa.
