John is originally from Toronto. He moved to Liverpool, England to study Audio Engineering where he met Sir Paul McCartney who critiqued one of his productions. He earned a BA degree and then moved to London and earned an MA degree in Remote Multimedia collaboration while also working as a live sound engineer.
After 8 years he returned to Canada and worked as the Lead Instructor of Audio Engineering in Kelowna, British Columbia teaching upwards of 100 students a week. Over the next 5 years he was immersed in web and app development and started working full time as a software developer.
His first software job was with Sessionwire where he developed the initial website and desktop app. After a short hiatus working for an enterprise software company (and becoming a dad) he is back at Sessionwire developing the next generation app and website.
