After spending his formative years sweating out the long Florida summers in his hometown of Gainesville, John moved to Colorado to study journalism and build his first snowman. The three-day road trip between Gainesville and Boulder became a twice-annual event that allowed him to see the see the country, take a lot of photos and develop a love-hate relationship with Route 66.

John knows a lot about:
He says “Don’t leave D.C. without seeing the United States Botanic Garden or watching the sunset from the Southwest Waterfront."
