Jason Hagopian began his career as an architect at TSAO Design Group more than 20 years ago as a project coordinator. Now the managing principal of the group’s Miami office, he is responsible for establishing and growing the organization’s hospitality, private and public projects sectors.
A registered architect in Florida, California, New York and Georgia, Hagopian is also a director on the board of The Pride Center at Equality Park in Wilton Manors.
“I have been instrumental in assisting the Pride Center in their master plan and senior housing projects,” Hagopian said. “The board is immensely talented and inspires me every day to be a better person and a stronger voice for our community.”
Hagopian, who has been with his partner for 17 years, has been an out gay man since he lived in San Francisco back in 1993. “Since [then], I’ve done what I can to make up for the lost time of being afraid and closeted,” Hagopian said.
Hagopian says he’s always given back where he can, specifically to such causes as the STOP AIDS project in San Francisco and the AIDS Ride in California.
“I’ve done more MS, cancer and AIDS rides than I can count and raised a great deal of money and awareness for these organizations as a result,” Hagopian said.
