Jamar Moore was born and raised in the coastal city of Hampton, Virginia. While attending the School of Architecture at the University of Virginia, Moore, along with a friend, helped revitalize a dormant NOMAS Chapter into an organization where designers of various majors, ethnicities and year levels could discuss the important issues of their education as well as provide guidance and mentorship. Currently, NOMAS at UVa is 30+ members strong and have competed in the 2014 Student Competition at the NOMA National Conference with plans to compete and place in the 2015 Competition. Currently, Moore is a Designer at ICON architecture in Boston, MA and sees BosNOMA as his home away from home. Through BosNOMA, he plans to continue to work with students of all ages to help guide them to a career in design. Along with architecture, Moore is an avid urban photographer who strives to capture how people interact with the built environment.
