Superpower | Mr. Freeze // Jon has a unique ability to stay calm during stressful situations.

Originally from Mexico, Jon grew up in the picturesque landscapes of northwest Wyoming, surrounded by chickens, horses, and cows, fueling his appreciation for nature and the built environment.

Jon's interest in architecture was piqued while working in the field, where he was able to imagine new ways to improve the usability of spaces. He began his formal study of architecture when he moved to Bozeman in 2012, all the while continuing to work in construction. As a Designer for 45 Architecture, he brings with him experience in residential work, remodels, and commercial projects across Wyoming and Montana. The most important lesson of all this experience, he said, was the realization that architecture can provide enormous value to human experience beyond the pure aesthetics of it.

When he's not designing, Jon indulges in his love for tacos, whether it's making them, eating them, or aspiring to become the best taquero in Bozeman. He also enjoys exploring the great outdoors through camping, fishing, hiking, and immersing himself in the beauty of Montana’s landscape.
