John a grassroots political activist, a member of the Defense of Liberty PAC and an elected At Large Alternate Delegate to the 2012 Republican National Convention. John’s mother and father both served in the United States Marine Corps and he was born on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in southern California. John grew up on several Marine bases where his family was stationed including Germany, Hawaii and Arizona. When his mother lost her battle with cancer when he was 13 John went to live with his mother’s parents in Washington State. He enjoyed discussing politics and history with his grandparents. John’s grandfather is a retired Air Force Chief Master Sergeant and Vietnam veteran and his grandmother was born in England and recalls growing up there as a young girl during World War II.
John’s upbringing as a military brat definitely instilled a passion for travel. In addition to his country’s neighboring Canada and Mexico he has travelled to Benin, England, France, India and Spain. After working aboard a cruise ship in the Hawaiian Islands for several years, John decided to make the journey to Vermont after spending some time visiting friends and family in Washington State. It was during his intermission in Washington State that he learned of Congressman Ron Paul during the Presidential debates. After reading Ron Paul’s book The Revolution: A Manifesto John’s already keen political interests were steered towards the works of Austrian economists F.A. Hayek, Ludwig von Mises, and Henry Hazlett. He also discovered works from Ayn Rand, Isabel Paterson, Alexis De Tocqueville and eventually a great many writers who expounded the principles of liberty.
John campaigned for Ron Paul during the 2008 Presidential Election in Washington State predominantly via the internet. Upon moving to Portland, Maine in 2011 John learned that Congressman Paul was again running for President and he made the easy decision to volunteer for his campaign, this time on the Atlantic side of the country. John has been an active member of the Portland Republican City Committee and has sought to advance freedom, liberty and voluntary association without coercion.
