Words from Jon’s portfolio/resume:
I grew up in Charlotte, NC in a nice family. I was inspired when I was little to pursue architecture by a scout leader who was also an architect. I studied music performance, enrolled in an arts high school for the violin. I then attended Appalachian State University’s Building Science college where I majored in Architectural Technology and Design and minored in Community & Regional Planning and Music (again with the violin). Beyond being involved with architectural clubs and extracurricular activities, I played in the school orchestra and several bands where I song wrote and sang and all that.
…from an ASU essay:
I remember every detail of the house I grew up in. I can recall every corner, floor material, wall material; every room. I think it’s because my brother and I explored it as much as it could possibly be explored. I literally could go through every single room and give the exact layout…[we lived in that house until Jon was 15]
