John was raised in Wisconsin farm country, and moved to DC in high school where he lived for the next 30 years. There he started working in construction at age 18, at the bottom of the ladder. After gaining years of experience, he started a decking company and later did production management in Arlington VA, for a high-end remodeling company. He moved to WV to escape the confines of the city and start a charity project, then began working for Seven Rivers. He’s currently carving out a new life up on a mountainside in northern Greenbrier county with his new best friend and wife Connie. He still holds onto his “midwest values” and loves working with people in the Mountain State.
