JOHN BRANSON

AIA, LEED AP, NCARB
PRINCIPAL / DIRECTOR  

In 1989, as a graduate student at the University of Utah, John was the recipient of the GSBS Architects scholarship.  With little job experience and even less knowledge than he believed he had, he decided that the scholarship award was a sufficient introduction to go and beg for a job.  Twenty-five years later, he is honored to have a role in leading the firm.  He does, however, sometimes miss the ammonia fumes from running blueprints many years ago.

When not at work, John likes to spend time travelling with family, mountain biking with friends, reading a good novel, painting, and exploring the desert southwest.
