May Face of Ensemble – Jason Muller
The May Face of Ensemble is our Development Associate (Long Beach Office), Jason!
When did you join Ensemble and what do you do?
I joined Ensemble right after the country’s birthday in the summer of 2015. I joined the Development Department as a Development Associate to coordinate new project design, entitlement, development and construction delivery.
What do you like most about working at Ensemble?
I love the style of projects we are currently working on and the creative process behind the projects we are planning. What I enjoy the most about Ensemble is the people I work with and the opportunity to grow and learn from some of the best people in the business.
Why or how did you get into your current line of work?
I was traditionally trained as an architect, worked in a city government position managing permits/entitlements, then decided to attend USC business school to begin a career in development and real estate investments.
Where did you grow up and what was your first job?
I grew up in Torrance, California – not too far from the beach. My dad owned a machine shop, so I actually grew up there learning how to use wielders and lathes at a young age. My first job was to help my dad with his company as his professional helper. He designed and built manufacturing machinery for the lumber and aviation industry. I really enjoyed this time with him and learned tremendously.
What do you do for fun after work?
I enjoy working on personal and family projects for fun after work. This includes practicing music with my brother Keith for our band, surfing with friends and spending as much time as possible with my son Lucas and lovely wife Laura. You can usually find the three of us at the beach, park or at home singing and dancing.
What is your favorite or most memorable vacation spot?
My favorite vacation spot is where ever my wife wants to go next!
