Dean founded DJR Architecture in 1985 in the Phillips Neighborhood with an emphasis on affordable housing and community development. He has since continued to evolve the firm into a broad based provider of architectural services, though he still plays an active role in the development of Phillips Neighborhood.  This includes the Phillips Community Aquatic Center, East Phillips Community Center, the Bii Di Gain Dash Anwebi Elder housing and many others.  Dean has also been involved in the revitalization of several commercial streets in the Twin Cities and in the emerging oilfields of North Dakota.  He has also guided several tribal nations in their economic infrastructure and architectural development.  He and his wonderful wife Anna (an interior designer) have three beautiful children: Christina, Jamie, Elizabeth.
