John is a writer, actor, and teacher living in Burlington, VT. Last Fall saw the production of his original work, The Question, at the Off Center for the Dramatic Arts. He has worked with Green Candle Theater Company, Moxie Productions, Vermont Stage, and Champlain College on myriad productions ranging from Green Candle's ineffable The Napoleon to Hamlet. His upcoming play, Fidelity, is currently in the works! John is a founding member and weekly facilitator of the Pomeroy Street Poets (Formerly Pine Street Poets), whose second chapbook will be published this summer by Honeybee Press. He is invested in the teaching of all writing, across genre, to all people. What is more important than Voice?
"I love how John naturally established his authority as a writer, giving personal examples of his process, success, and struggles, and sprinkling the workshop with quotes from other writers. My students gathered more insights from John's offering than usual."
