About Hammer

A Lead Landscape Architect with roots from a small town of less than 2,000 in Western New York, Hammer's family lineage and work ethic is an important facet of his values. His co-workers and clients affectionately refer to him by his last name, a universal identifier throughout the MMI family. As an Eagle Scout, he revels in our most challenging projects, generating unique, outside-the-box pathways to success. Hammer is also an influencer to the firm's computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) philosophy and future vision, as well as an advisor to our information technology (IT) systems. He values working with people and evoking changes to places that improve the quality of life for others.


John is adept at Autodesk Civil 3D and Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite Premium and has experience with MassDOT CAD standards. He holds a B.L.A. and A.A.S. from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry and is a licensed Landscape Architect in Connecticut and Massachusetts.
