John Nagao

LEED Green Associate

Project Facilitator

Hailing from Athens, Georgia, John joined VMDO in 2013 after falling for Charlottesville during graduate school. His graduate studies focused on examining how the built environment impacts human health and behavior, an interest he continues at VMDO with the Post-Occupancy Evaluation research team. He also assists project teams with the CA process, works with the Business Development team to maintain the firm’s CRM database, and coordinates HR. When not at work, John takes great pleasure in swimming, green tea, and shamelessly indulging his sartorial predilection for the color navy.


Master of Urban and Environmental Planning, University of Virginia, 2011
