Prior to moving to L.A., John spent most of his childhood in Florida, pursuing filmmaking. With the encouragement of friends and family, he moved to Los Angeles, working his way up from his first job as an extra (a zombie), to various key roles on set. â€œI met a great crew that took me under their wing and trained me on set. As a grip I was able to watch and learn from the director, actors, and production. I've spent 2 years crewing and have worked in just about every department. It was like on the job training. Currently, I work as an in-house Director for a Marketing Agency."
