John is an architect with formidable experience, who is known for giving his clients direct attention and hands-on service.

Throughout his working life John has consulted as a practicing architect in the delivery of our built environment and has also acted as a consultant to both local and state government in providing design advice generally. In relation to the latter John has acted for the City of Maribyrnong under their Design Advisory Service (DAS), and for the private sector and numerous non-government not-for-profit organisations.

John is currently the immediate past-President of Xavier College Burke Hall Father's Association. From 2006 to 2012 John was a board member at Genazzano FCJ College where he also chaired the Building and Resources Committee, a sub-committee of the College Council.  During this time John actively oversaw the College master plan and the delivery of a range of facilities including the Madeline Centre for the performing arts and more recently the new Early Learning Centre (ELC) informed by the Reggio Emilia Educational approach.  As a member of the College Council John developed a detailed appreciation for new pedagogies in education and the roles and responsibilities of governance in primary and secondary institutions.
