Born in Mt. Kisco New York, Raised in Indiana. Educated in Boston. I started on piano, then Saxaphone, then guitar, Mandolin, Dobro, Banjo, and Cello. I have had a lifetime of music making. Starting out (as many do) in elementary school bands then middle and high school concert and jazz bands. On to Berklee College of Music, then many years of playing shows up and down the east coast and working as a session guitar player. Eventually becoming part of the Blue Man Group as a musician in the band which brought him out to LA and then into the world of film and television. Napoleon Dynamite is the film that put John on the map. Then How I Met Your Mother. There have been many films and television shows since. It has been a great adventure so far and I look forward to all the new adventures are in front of me now.
