Originally from East Hartford CT, John has always considered Connecticut his home. After graduating from Wittenberg University, he did graduate work at Fairfield University where his master's emphasis was in corporate administration and communications.

Shortly after leaving Fairfield University, John was hired by ICI Americas as Sales and Marketing Manager for the Western United States. The position required him to relocate to the San Francisco Bay Area. After working with ICI for a number of years, John joined a local San Francisco Store Fixture company and become Executive Vice President. In 1995 he left the company to start his own retail store fixture company.

During the following sixteen years, he designed, and manufactured display fixtures for such blue chip companies as Cartier, Mont Blanc, The Walt Disney Company, and Waterford Crystal. His attention to detail and his never ending efforts to please his clients with an excellent product and unequalled customer service made his company a huge success.

In 2010 he purchased a home in Old Lyme and in 2011, retired from his company and returned to his native Connecticut.

John has always had a passion for real estate. In his years in California he purchased, remodeled and sold numerous properties in both San Francisco and the Sonoma Valley Wine Country. In 2011 he decided to pursue his passion for real estate and became a realtor.

His over-riding concern, from his days at ICI to his years at his own company, has always been his client's complete satisfaction. He always says" stand in the clients shoes first". John's enthusiasm, marketing experience, and intuitive knowledge of real estate gives his clients a unique advantage.

John works out at Shoreline Fitness Center in Old Saybrook. He is an avid body surfer and currently plays dad to two Polish Lowland Sheepdogs.
