As a licensed architect for over 30 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 colleges for over 11 years before founding greenscreen® in 1994 as a reluctant entrepreneur.
Over the last 21 years John has helped establish greenscreen® as the industry leader of “Green Façades” in North America. With over 7,000 projects and a highly committed staff he is always looking forward to the next green wall challenge. When not working, John is usually in the garden, cooking on his “big green egg” or tinkering in the converted warehouse space that he shares with his wife Ruth.
John’s favorite vine: Blackeyed Susan, Thunbergia alta
