John is currently pursuing a landscape architecture degree at UC Davis and continues to work part-time with us as Project Intern assisting with a variety of projects. Juggling both school and work, John enthusiastically tests his newly acquired knowledge in landscape architecture on real life projects while inspiring others in the office with his creative design and problem solving skills. After living in the Bay Area for over 16 years and interning at other landscape architecture firms in the Bay Area, he is further developing a strong knowledge of 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.
