John comes from a long line of architects and artists. It’s in his blood. Born and raised in Pasadena, California, John was encouraged by his Grandmother and Mother to explore his artistic talents, starting at the age of four. Interior design, architecture, painting and photography were his childhood hobbies and passions.
John attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he studied Business and Marketing, and at the same time nurtured his love for the arts. Also a big traveler, John has explored 39 countries to date, which has enhance his eye and ability to think outside the box when it comes to design. He has seen first-hand how to mix and match color, texture, furniture, art and design; gaining inspiration from Africa, Europe, India, Asia and Morocco.
John has gained design insight from not only travel and college course work but also by working for an interior design firm. His focus is more of a contemporary flare. He recently completed a massive log-cabin remodel giving it a modern feel. For that project he was not only the designer but also the architect and general contractor. John does an amazing job at creating beautiful and harmonious spaces. You will see a cohesiveness flow throughout all his projects as he sticks to his philosophy of "simple elegance."
