John, a WJW team member since 2017, brings his passion for perfection in the details and his strong desire to bring good design to those in need to his practice of architecture.

John’s design work, which spans a diverse range of building types including single family, hospitality and manufacturing projects as well as considerable experience in affordable housing, is informed by a multidisciplinary career. His background in construction allows him to assess each design decision in light of construction processes and end results, while his former work as an instructor at Auburn University’s acclaimed Rural Studio translates to an adaptable, collaborative work style and design work that considers humanity first.
