John’s work is driven by the belief that architecture should be sensitive to the environment. His involvement in woodworking, carpentry and construction have instilled in him a passion for the hands-on aspect of the architectural process, as well as a sense for practicality and an understanding of materiality. John leverages his experiences working across project typologies, from education and recreation to healthcare and infrastructure, to inform his leadership on many of the firm’s mixed-use residential projects. Whether directing a design team, spearheading AIA 2030 Commitment efforts, or leading the firm’s Sustainable Practice Group, his focus on sustainable design practices is guided by data informed decision making and follow up analysis.
He has lectured on the subjects of affordable housing and sustainability, speaking at the Center for Architecture, AIA NYS, Urban Green and GreenBuild, Forum for Urban Design, and the Re: Imagine Conference. John holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Tech.
