After graduating from Florida State University with a degree in Psychology, John wanted to focus on homeopathic, primitive, and mindfulness aspects of therapy and the wilderness experience. He traded in the beaches for mountaintops and came out to Open Sky.
John places value on work with students in the field and connections with the field guide community. He enjoys providing an experience in which people live in an authentic, healthy tribe that offers healing. His strengths lie in communication, balance, and mindfulness. John joined the Open Sky team as a Field Guide, became a Senior Guide, and was promoted to Field Manager in May 2019.
John enjoys playing guitar, practicing yoga, and exploring mountain sports.
