Jon is an architect, illustrator and painter who has taught architectural sketching at the Building Education Center in Berkeley for over 20 years. He is Build It Green Certified, a LEED AP, and a Green Point Rater. He has taught art classes locally, presented a lecture on Art in Everyday Life, and taught drawing at the Waldorf School (East Bay). His book and magazine illustrations have been published nationally, and his artwork has been exhibited in several galleries throughout the Bay Area.

Over the last 25 years, Jon has kept sketchbooks on his travels throughout Europe and the U.S., which he uses as a source of inspiration for his other work.
