While composing and performing music describes some of John's talents and skills, other activities inspire his interest. John takes delight in physical activity (running, volleyball, baseball/softball, tennis, soccer, ultimate frisbee) and public speaking.

He is currently engaged to his beautiful fiancée, Elizabeth. John's music and personal faith are closely linked together. A devout Christian, he believes that music should be composed and performed for the glory of God through Christ Jesus by reflecting God’s majesty, creativity, and beauty.
