Born in Pennsylvania, raised in South Carolina and Michigan, John started drawing comics when he was eight-years-old. He's married now (to his high-school sweetheart), has three beautiful children, two needy cats, and works as a technical communications specialist, but can still be found more often than not hunched over his drawing table.
John has a Bachelor of Science degree in Scientific and Technical Communications with a minor in Metallurgical Engineering from Michigan Technological University. This would be the proverbial "road less traveled" to a career in cartooning.
John’s cartoons have been stuck on refrigerators, office cubicles, and bulletin boards — the highest award a cartoonist can hope for. He has drawn comics for various newspapers, magazines, companies, and websites. Primary clients: Grand Rapids Business Journal, Grand Rapids Press, MLive newspapers, MLive.com, and presently MichiganRadio.org
Everybody can draw. John is living proof of this. Through practice and a willingness to take chances, he has taken a seed of meager artistic talent and grown it into a flourishing hibiscus of meager artistic talent.
