John grew up as a nomad, moving from town to town with his large loving boisterous family. He settled down in Ogden and accidentally became an accountant but then fixed that and became a computer programmer, which is what he really wanted to be (not including scientist and forest ranger). He made the best decision of his life when he married Jeannine. They have three weird, fascinating, awesome girls and two lazy cats.
John is enthralled by how stuff works, so he reads lots of books about science, history, politics, philosophy and religion. He also sometimes talks about himself in third person.
