Seattle, WA, US



I'm John, an architect currently based in Seattle, with connections in New York, Hong Kong, and Indonesia.


A generalist, hands-on architect passionate for the traditional craft of building combined with the incorporation of new building technologies and processes into the practice.

Representing a broad background across all phases of architectural design and management; my involvement on both large and small scale has crossed into commercial, retail, mixed use, and residential project types from Seattle, WA, to Jakarta, Indonesia.

  • Senior Designer leading a local, Indonesian construction management team
  • Architectural Consultant working with all parties (client, architect, consultants, contractor, and jurisdiction) providing comprehensive project management as well as documentation
  • Associate Architect in a larger firm gaining broad exposure to the architectural practice gamut

Exemplary skills: conceptual design, client relations, project management, development submittals
