Originally from Bogota, Colombia, Juan moved to Gaithersburg, Maryland at the age of 13. His parent’s careers (one a mechanical engineer, the other an interior designer) heavily influenced Juan’s upbringing, including the decision to pursue architecture. He joins Hickok Cole’s housing team with five years of experience under his belt, including Hawaii, an affordable housing project in northeast DC. As one of his first projects post-grad,  Juan saw it as an incredible professional development opportunity while allowing him to contribute to the city. He’s now looking forward to working on large-scale residential developments and collaborating with multiple stakeholders across project typologies. Juan lives in Shaw with his cat, Ollie, and enjoys soaking in the sights and sounds of the city during his regular long walks and photography sessions around DC.
