John was born and raised in Clarence Center, New York. From his youth he enjoyed playing outside and exploring his backyard woods. He began writing and putting on short plays in his basement when he was five, which lead to other writing pursuits in poetry, screenwriting, and other formats. In his teen years he also took his creative spark into the digital world, by creating short films and graphic designs.
He holds a Bachelors degree in Digital Media Arts from Canisius College (2017) and also studied Environmental Studies. His love of nature and the outdoors can be found throughout his writing. He enjoys tending to his vegetable garden in the summer, going on bike rides, and reading a good book from his local library.
He published his first book in 2017 and has moved on to illustrating and writing his own picture books.
