Senior Associate

"I love to draw in seconds what takes years to build—and express this complex idea in all its different manifestations. In the end, seeing how people live and breathe and move through something that started as an idea you contributed to is like no other reward."

John has been drawn to architecture through a childhood love of drawing and fascination with seeing how things come together. Since the late 1990s, he’s developed these interests into a varied artistic and technical skillset, married to a deep attention to detail, love of narrating, and collaborating with team members and stakeholders. The goal, always, is to create something that can be experienced and enjoyed by all.

John is experienced in and contributes to all aspects of architectural practice, from conceptual design to contract administration. He has also worked with many different project types, including K-12 Education, Multi-Family Residential, Affordable Housing, Senior Living, Large Scale Mixed Use, Commercial, and Retail in the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Area. He recently leveraged his experience in a successful pursuit to design a high-profile, award-winning high school in the DC region, in addition to several other local school projects.

John stays abreast of developments in computer technology, especially as it pertains to graphics and storytelling, given his long-standing dedication to these art forms. Honing these skills helps him stay current with an ever-changing profession and has given him insights into how architecture intersects with related artistic disciplines such as motion-picture graphics, video games, and website design. In turn, John very much enjoys showing others how to leverage all the possibilities of various digital tools for design. Outside of work, he has contributed graphics and renderings to nonprofits to assist in their fundraising efforts.
