John is a happily married father, cinematographer, director, producer, camera operator, lover of dogs, Instagram addict, and all-around happy dude.
He has shot projects of all shapes, sizes, and budgets; whether it's short films like the neo-noir Fate Accompli or feature films such as the character-driven NightLights, or whether it's traveling around the globe for the Bangladesh documentary Strong Bodies Fight, producing promotional spots for Research Down Syndrome or the Back2School program, or lensing the HBO GO web series "Single Long" in his hometown of Chicago, he's always eager to collaborate and tell unique stories in a visually dynamic style.
John is also the executive producer of Glass City Films, a Midwest-based production company through which he has overseen as producer and lensed several short films including Rendezvous, Hangers, and Under The Table. He has also produced a trio of award-winning feature films in Glass City, Happily After (his directorial debut) and Separation Anxiety, in addition to several music videos and side projects. Glass City Films successfully raised over $35k in funds through Kickstarter for his second feature film as director, the acclaimed post-apocalyptic horror film Chrysalis.
John is a graduate of the MFA Digital Cinema program at DePaul University, and he has written and directed several short films including Static Space, Skimmers and Cry It Out. He currently is an assistant professor in the digital media program at Elmhurst University.
