John entered the field of architecture out of interest in the built world. Having grown up in the 60s and 70s at the height of mid-century modern design, on-going development of the modern campus and evolution of the skyscraper was influential. Through his 36+ years working in the field of architecture, he has become an expert in healthcare and senior living environment design, as well as commercial development. As the Healthcare Studio Principal, John has lead notable projects such as the Aldara Hospital and Medical Center in Riyadh, Henry Ford Medical Group Facilities in Southeast Michigan, and Tucson Medical Center Master Plan and Development in Arizona. In addition to his practical experience, John has overseen and contributed to the publication of several whitepapers pertaining to healthcare design.
