John Sharpe is a passionate and knowledgeable 10 year veteran of the building industry and has worked with design and building companies, architectural firms, property ownership for casino hotels, and with companies in the commercial, education, and electrical utility industries. Using his degree in Architecture, inner city background in Atlanta, and living experiences in Lexington, San Diego, Coronado, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Cincinnati, John has contributed to projects for many diverse buildings, milestones and goals. These great projects have ranged from integration of tribal language into a resort campus to creating a spectacle for guest experience, rebranding store locations to create a sense of place, and even weaving the rhythm of Spanish Renaissance into a building exterior and gathering places.

Outside of the workplace, the art of collage has also been a specific concentration. In the context of professional experience, a concentration on hospitality related projects gave way to other areas that all relate to public spaces. New projects emerged for mixed-use residential, commercial retail and campus utilities and to other building related experience with office interiors, upgrades to MEP and building systems, structural and curtain wall components, and interior finishes.
