Recognition: Juneau resident earns state architect license

MRV Architects is proud to announce that Zane Jones has passed all exams required for licensing as an architect in the state of Alaska, and is now a full member of the American Institute of Architects.

Zane received his masters degree in architecture from the Design School at Arizona State University in 2012. He has worked at MRV Architects for five years, first as a summer intern in 2011 when he was intrigued to try the Juneau experience, then full-time as a project manager since 2012.

Originally from Utah, Zane has a background in construction and earned his bachelor’s degree from Utah State University in 2007. Zane is also a LEED Green Associate. His most recent projects for MRV include Housing First and the Marine Exchange of Alaska building, both currently under construction in Juneau.

Students from Juneau earn acolades.

"The High Holidays arrive and after some critical self-assessment and necessary teshuva, you erase the blackboard, excited to continue on with a new year and a clean slate. Now imagine that a year passes and you take out that blackboard once again, anticipating that you will have a nice, clean board to write your regrets, but the board isn’t clean."
Living & Growing: Let our regrets lead us to action

The High Holy Days ask us to channel our regrets into meaningful action.

"But while I may find temporary solace in the arms of another carbohydrate," writes Geoff Kirsch. :I’ll always return to my first love. Indeed, my three favorite foods are French fries, mashed potatoes and a kosher deli item known as a “knish,” which is essentially a mashed potato stuffed inside a crust that tastes like French fries."

“Potatoes are a gateway starch, and take it from me, I’ve done them all…”
