Curriculum Vitae: 

Originally from Westminster, Maryland; John is a licensed Architect in Maryland and West Virginia. He graduated in 2014 from Fairmont State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture, and from Miami University in Ohio with a Masters of Architecture degree in 2016.

After graduating, John and his Wife Kitty moved back to Morgantown, WV where he has worked at Desmone Architects. At Desmone, John manages multiple projects typically in the Residential, Health Care, Retail, and Industrial markets.

John’s favorite part of practicing architecture is the initial stage where the architect is given a problem and they must come up with a couple different solutions that could solve the client’s needs and wants. “This is where the value of an architect shines.” says John. He enjoys having an impact on the built environment where we all live and work; in the hopes of making thoughtful spaces and designs that people will be able to use and enjoy for years to come.
