John began his journey in the entertainment industry as many do, as an actor. After exploring life on stage, in film and television, he continued other forms of performance as a host, improviser and stand up comedian. After spending sometime in Los Angeles, John returned to his home state of Colorado to pursue work behind the camera.

Fully immersed in the industry for over 15 years now, John has directed short films, webisodes and commercials (The Note, Three Sisters Laundry & The Locals). Produced feature films (College Pranks, Cut/Print). Helped cast national television commercials (Coors, Ford & Coke-a-Cola) major motion pictures (Gone Girl, Lords of Dogtown) and Television Shows (Supernanny & 20/20).

Working with actors is really what John does best, whether that is coaching his acting workshops at Front Range Acting Studio or with Hamilton Casting as a session director.
