I'm John, a production designer with a background in the themed entertainment industry, from theme parks to cultural centers. I recently graduated from SCAD

(The Savannah College of Art and Design) with a Bachelor's degree in Production Design in May.

Beaudry Interactive Internship
Imaginations Design Competition
Villa Savoye

Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, I loved the prairie style architecture around the Midwest from a young age and became interested in design. At SCAD, my studies ranged from theatrical scenic design to dark ride concepts, graphic design, and more. My recent interests are travel, live entertainment, and themed experiences. 

Most recently I graduated summa cum laude from SCAD in Production Design. During my final year, I also participated in the 2020 Disney Imaginations Student Design Competition and the 6th Annual Cornell Themed Entertainment Design Competition, placing 3rd and 4th respectively. 

In 2019, I was a visual experience design intern at Beaudry Interactive, LLC in Los Angeles, California. There I worked on projects from museums and cultural centers to theme park attractions, and worked with the core team on everything from visual design to digital modeling.

When I'm not designing, I'm still always busy. I love cooking & baking, running, hiking, and traveling in addition to my artistic hobbies.
