Jason Lee grew up in Vancouver, Canada, where unfortunately, he did not live in an igloo or commute to school via dogsled. He does sometimes slip up and say 'eh?' or pronounce words like about 'aboot'. For over a decade, he had the privilege of living and working as an affordable housing architect/urban designer in cities with great transportation infrastructure like Amsterdam, Toronto, and Shanghai. He is currently the founder and principal of FMRA, a strategic design consultancy that develops initiatives to build equity and inclusivity in the civic realm. Through his work with clients such as Boston Public Schools, the City of Boston, MassHousing, Smarter in the City and others, Jason recognizes the centrality of transportation infrastructure as a determinant of racial and economic equity. For this reason he views the work of LivableStreets as critical to closing the gaps that divide our communities across the city and the region. Jason is also a mentor with MIT's DesignX accelerator program and sits on their advisory board. He holds a bachelor's degree in Anthropology from McGill University and a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Toronto. In his free time, he loves to walk and mountain bike the Middlesex Fells Reservation adjacent to his town of Winchester with his family.
