About 

My name is John Chandler Gregory. As a native to North-East Louisiana, I was raised on the Mississippi River in a small town that is part of the Delta Ground.  Here is where I learned to enjoy the outdoors and free-hand sketching.  My sketching/drawing soon "drew" me towards the fascination of details.  The agricultural equipment in my area was so intriguing.  The finite details that created the form and function of these machines, blended with my pursuit of artistry brought me to where I am today.

I have an array of skills ranging from operating heavy equipment, GPS survey technology, BIM and algorithmic modeling, CNC operation to carpentry skills.  I pride myself on new challenges and taking on new experiences.  It has ultimately shaped my personality as well as my professional career.  

I am currently working as a contract worker for a custom mill-shop in New Orleans, LA.  It is a small business with an incredible atmosphere but I am looking to get back into the Architecture "world" of things, so I can develop my skills and hopefully earn my licensure !!!!!
