THE REAL JOHN
John grew up in Corte Madera but moved north to Mendocino County over a decade ago,
relocating for a new job. John then made the move to Sonoma County, now residing in Cloverdale.
“Living in Sonoma County for the first time brings me full-circle, in a way, since my
great-grandfather was born in Petaluma in 1854 (a true pioneer!) and I have lots of relatives
in this county,” John states.
When away from the office, John takes pleasure in outdoor activities such as barbecuing,
attending Giants games, and hiking. “My favorite places to hike are Mt. Tampalais and
Point Reyes in Marin County, Cloverdale River Park, and Armstrong Woods in
Guerneville,” John affirms. John would often take his loyal dog, Spot, hiking with
him as well as on his daily walks around the neighborhood. After the unfortunate
passing of dear Spot, John hopes to continue this tradition with his future
Additionally, John is an avid sports fan and can be frequently found following
the Giants, 49ers, Warriors and, of course, his Alma Mater UCLA (go Bruins!).
With a devotion to church, worship services and bible studies, John also spends a lot of time at
St. Peter's church in Cloverdale. In addition, John continually finds ways to support the local food
banks to help prevent people from going hungry.
