John's passion for sustainability and analysis brought him to the Boston Architectural College where studied architectural technology and sustainable design. While at the BAC, John led a student team that developed the first Climate Action Plan - a strategy for developing a carbon-neutral campus. John helped develop the College's carbon accounting methodology, enabling the BAC to cut annual operating emissions by 25%.

His work also includes carbon analysis at the city scale and preliminary site assessments.
As a member of the team at Linnean Solutions, a partner in the BAC's urban sustainability initiative, John continues to engage with the College to support its carbon emissions reduction goals.
