John received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies and Government from St. Lawrence University and his Master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning from Virginia Tech. His passion for sustainability, transportation, and planning were sparked by a study abroad experience in Denmark in 2013. Before joining Kittelson, he worked as a consultant to the U.S Department of Transportation focusing on research and deployment programs for multimodal transportation planning, evaluation, and operations, smart cities and communities, and accessible transportation for underserved populations. John is particularly interested in the impact of emerging mobility innovation technology on the transportation system. In his free time, John likes to spend time with his wife and Springer Doodle pup, and engage in any kind of outdoor activity, but he especially likes skiing during an annual family trip to Colorado. John is also an avid Boston Red Sox fan.
