As a licensed architect for over 35 years, John has worked on large and small scale projects both nationally and internationally since completing his Masters of Architecture and Urban Design at the Southern California Institute of Architecture. In Los Angeles he started Acmestudios, an interdisciplinary firm working in architecture, textiles and design. As a complement to this work in private practice John also taught architecture at several Los Angeles based colleges for over 11 years before founding greenscreen® in 1994 as a reluctant entrepreneur.
John was instrumental in establishing greenscreen® as the industry leader of “Green Façades” in North America. During his 22 years of leadership John oversaw the completion of over 9,000 projects with the help of a highly talented and committed staff. John retired in 2016.
