John joined our studio as a project intern working two summers with us prior to receiving his landscape architecture degree at UC Davis. Now as a full-time landscape designer, John enthusiastically applies his creative design and problem solving skills on a variety of projects within the office. His thorough understanding of AutoCAD, Photoshop, and overall design work-flow provides a solid foundation to pursuing his passion for California landscape design.
John’s interest in landscape architecture began at a young age when he started to design small natural landscapes for plastic miniatures in middle school, but after dipping his toes in a few landscape architecture classes in high school and at Diablo Valley College, he knew that this was a profession worth pursuing.
As a big fan of fantasy literature and local history, John believes that storytelling through design is an important and unique way landscape architects can create meaningful outdoor spaces. He believes that landscape composition has a huge effect on everyday human life and through design storytelling we are able to evoke emotion and teach the community about smart sustainable spaces.
