Speaking the language of both business and design, he combines the importance of branding and identity with the realities of the built environment. Along with Gus, he believes that the built environment and the brand identity should be developed in parallel. This makes the project come together better, faster and on budget.

 

John also leads the team on the development of IT infrastructure and website development. If you need a centralized file server, he’s your guy.

 

When not not drawing details or programing a website, John spends most of his time in the kitchen making honest food from the most natural ingredients. Yum.
