Jeff Penza, AIA, is a 1982 Graduate of the University of Cincinnati, and moved to Baltimore for a “temporary” opportunity to work.
He founded his own firm in 1999, and is currently a principal at Penza Bailey Architects, where he focuses on the firm’s custom residential, private and non-profit clients. Jeff continues to be very involved in the community and has held positions on numerous boards, including president of the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, the Rotary Club of Baltimore, Preservation Maryland, and several others. Jeff believes it is time to give back to his profession by serving on the AIA Baltimore Board. Jeff is married to Laura, who is also a partner at Penza Bailey, and they are proud parents of two grown children. Their daughter, Leah, has followed in their footsteps with her Masters of Architecture from Miami University and is an intern in the firm.
