Raised on a small farm in Clovis, California, John learned mechanics and built his first car by age 16, earning income as a fruit picker. John was also named athlete of the year from Clovis High School.
John graduated from Fresno State University with an industrial technology and teaching degree. He was lured to the Mendocino Coast by its natural beauty, and found his first teaching job as an automotive instructor in Fort Bragg, building a very successful program from scratch, teaching for 20 years.
After retiring from teaching, John taught himself to design and build several houses, with a lot of “hands on involvement”.
A Mendocino Coast resident since 1971, and an active ballroom dancer, John is very familiar with the community, and enjoys talking and listening with buyers and sellers regarding their real estate needs, with patience and integrity.
