His medical career spans over 20 years. John now lives in  the southern Adirondacks in upstate New York with his family.  

John has traveled all over the world - Spain to Japan, South Africa, Italy, India, Ireland, Mexico, Chile — he loves nothing more than to criss-cross the globe in search of great culinary and cultural experiences.
