John grew up in the small town of Pleasanton, Texas- just south of San Antonio, Texas. After high school, John attended college at Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi where he was a double major in Finance and Marketing graduating in 2016. During his time there, he became heavily involved with the Intrarmural Program by being an official and eventually the lead supervisor, and participated in almost every event the Rec Center had to offer. He was also one of the "Founding Fathers" of the Club Basketball team at TAMUCC. John stayed at TAMUCC for grad school and had the opportunity to serve as the Competitive Sports Graduate Assistant which is when he discovered his true passion for Campus Recreation. After completion of his MBA in 2018, John moved west to begin his career at Arizona State University where he currently serves as the Sports Program Coordinator for the Downtown Campus. During his free time, John likes to do anything sports related! He is also a big fan of a long Netflix binge and claims his hidden talent is cooking something up in the kitchen.
