John Barbour: writer, educator, designer, architect.

As an architect and designer, John has worked on projects for billionaires, for disadvantaged communities, and for everyone in between, practicing in multiple states and on three continents. As an educator, he has lectured to thousands of students and academics at universities in the United States, Australia, and Italy. As a writer, he polishes language for government agencies and corporations; then, in his so-called spare time, he churns out science fiction for internationally lauded publishers (some pseudonyms may apply). John loves thorny challenges and can only think in straight lines when using a T-square.
