Having dreamed and played at being in radio as a child, John would finally get his chance in 1994. Attending Point Park University with an eye on television production, he at first viewed radio as something of a hobby. He took his first job at a country station in 1997, and has stayed in radio in some capacity ever since. He has worked in a variety of formats, but jazz is his favorite. He begin working at Pittsburgh's jazz station WDUQ in 1998, going from off-air to hosting jazz a couple of nights a week.
Jazz is an important part of John's day, early or late. He finds it a great way to pass time in his activities, including writing science fiction, reading, or just being busy. John is an experienced videographer and editor, and works with community theatre groups.
