Modesto (Jun) Puno, Architect

Jun (Junior) is a senior rock of stability. His architectural career spans a couple of continents, covers “many” decades and involves participation in more Kansas City and regional architectural projects and developments than you or I have time to count. He is brilliant and with his graying hair and mustache, twinkling eyes, rye sense of humor and curiously heavy (still?) accent, provides an instant sense of calm and stability where ever he goes. Paul and Ryan both apprenticed beneath Jun at some point in their careers. Now he is back keeping an eye on his protégés.  Jun moves with an easygoing and steady pace. Remember the tortoise and the hare? While Jun moves faster than a tortoise, he always crosses the finish line at the head of the pack; with a smile on his face.
