John is an Associate Principal at Command Commissioning and is responsible for Building Automation System, Security, Fire Alarm, and Intelligent Building Controls commissioning at the functional and integrated systems level of complex and highly reliable systems for mission critical facilities. John also applies the commissioning process to existing buildings (retro-commissioning) with an emphasis on HVAC system optimization and measurement and verification (M&V). In this role, John is responsible for the design and implementation of enhanced sequences of operation and the engineering analysis required to validate energy savings.

His experience includes over 7 years of mechanical engineering analysis and research. John is a member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

Prior to joining Command Commissioning in 2010, John worked at the Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL) at Texas A&M University (TAMU) as a student and became a Research Engineering Associate after graduating. He was involved in the commissioning of existing building HVAC systems as part of an ongoing process known as Continuous Commissioning© (CC©). His focus was on building energy calculations and modeling, field assessments, identifying and implementing energy cost reduction measures, and preparing contract documents at the TAMU campus and other government facilities.
