John grew up in a small Indiana town. He lived in Europe for several years after college, aiding to his understanding of the world. He came to Seattle in 1969 and got active with the Seattle Liberation Front against the Vietnam war. He later dropped out of graduate school and became a journeyman machinist, working at Boeing making parts for commercial airplanes. When it looked like Bush/Cheney were going to invade Iraq, John was part of the group that started Sound Nonviolent Opponents of War in 2002. John was one of the SNOW 12 arrested in a nonviolent sit in trying to prevent that war. He joined WWFOR at that time.
