Background Summary:

After High School, John spent 10 years working and learning in the building Industry as a tradesman (carpentry/finishes). At 28, John received an opportunity to attend the University of Washington. While he Intended to Study Architecture, his path also found a pull toward Industrial Design. After a strong graduation in 2012, top of his Class, John spent a number of years working as a 3-D modeler and in Building Management with the Green Home Industry in Seattle. In 2015 he moved to the Rocky Mtns to Manage the re-opening and Restoration of a long vacant Hotsprings and Resort, Trinity Hot Springs. During that time John also worked on an Industrial Design product with a co-designer in Boise developing Wearable Hidden Data Drives, the Hidden Gem project.

 

After hitting a rough spot in 2018, John moved back to Washington, re-entered the trades & started building a new foundation with all the he tools now carried. A re-grounding before launching back toward the world of Design and Architecture.
