About John

I graduated from West Point in 2013. I'm hoping to take my Art, Philosophy and Literature degree and move into a position in the News and Media field. A job under an experienced journalist or producer would allow me to develop my skills there and grow a career in the media field. As a rock climber and mountaineer, I have a fanatic passion for the outdoors. I also feel very strongly about conservation and getting more people from all backgrounds outside. I've been in the military for 6 years as an Artillery Officer. My first 3 years were in tactical units and my last 3 have been on operations staff. Both those experiences have given me strengths in managing large, complex tasks and communicating to executives and the public.
