John’s passion for design influences every project undertaken by SGA’s architecture studio, which he oversees. His enthusiasm for placemaking and creating innovative environments is reflected in the firm’s increasingly prestigious portfolio.
Since joining SGA in 2005, John has led large-scale urban projects in the commercial, technology, and life-sciences markets. He typically plays a major role in master planning, conceptual design, and the public approvals process. John relishes opportunities to present the perspective of clients at meetings and generate consensus among communities and municipalities.
Previously, John served as a project designer at Amsler Mashek MacLean Architects. During his six-year tenure there, he honed his skills while completing a wide range of project types, including public libraries and private secondary schools.
John received a Bachelor and Master of Architecture from Virginia Tech. Outside of the office, he spends time with his wife, two sons, and dog Brenna, who is a lab mix. He and his family enjoy traveling, the beach, and sports: They support Boston’s pro teams as well as college teams at John’s alma mater and at Ohio State, his wife’s alma mater.
