He received his bachelor’s degree with a Major in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis, and later his Master of Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley in 1986. Early on he pursued his lifelong passion for architecture on urban and library design projects around the country during his tenure at numerous prestigious firms including Skidmore Owings & Merrill and Shepley Bulfinch Richardson & Abbott.
John’s primary interest has always been residential architecture and particularly the design of the built form and the surrounding landscape as a seamless unity. This prompted his master’s thesis planning and design study: The Villa and the Garden - Suburbia Reexamined at the Carolands mansion in Hillsborough, California.

There he designed many varied residential designs - predominantly in the traditional vernacular, typical of the grand estates built over a century earlier. His projects have been published in periodicals both domestically and in Europe. In 2019, John joined the Santa Barbara office of Appleton Partners LLP as a Senior Project Manager.
His passion for classical and traditional architecture led him to the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) in 1990 where he currently serves as the Vice President of the Southern California Chapter and was recently elected to Fellow of the ICAA. John has also served as New England Chapter President for five consecutive years. John is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and is licensed in Massachusetts.
