John was born in Chicago and grew up in Connecticut, where he currently resides. While working in the IT industry for many years, John also became a published author and photographer. He applies the unique qualities obtained from a structured career and multiple creative outlets interchangeably, each discipline informing the other, a synergy constantly creating new and exciting approaches. John’s photography acts as a perfect companion to his writing: a visual counterpoint to the written word, the two often published together as well as independently. His photography may feature negative space or geometrical patterns, as an example, whereas his writing may illuminate such space or purposely blur patterns and connections. Regardless, discipline and routine always apply. John has had many photographs, poems, and short stories, including a novella, published in both print and on-line journals over the years.
