John is a native of Columbus, Ohio. He graduated from Hamilton College in 2010 with a BA in Chinese and Anthropology before joining the Air Force in 2012. John spent 8 years flying on the U-28A and served most of his active-duty career at Cannon AFB, New Mexico and Hurlburt Field, Florida. In 2020, John joined the Oklahoma Air National Guard and works there part time as he attends graduate school. John is a MPA candidate at Harvard’s Kennedy School. I am looking to pair my MPA with a JD in the coming years. In my free time I enjoy reading, whiskey, and a good long run.
