Prior to joining the Dream Corps, he led Thrive Networks for 13 years, helping the organization expand from Vietnam to a dozen countries in Asia and Africa. He was also the founder and executive director of the Independent Press Association, and served as the board chair of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights for seven years.

John is an avid adventurer, and can be found most weekends freediving, spearfishing, bicycle racing, backcountry skiing, scuba diving or doing a triathlon. He is a former motorcycle road racer, although family members currently prohibit that activity.

John was a Peace Corps volunteer in Mauritania, West Africa, and at various times was reasonably competent in five languages.
