Before John's stories made it into print he snapped the Eyesore of the week for the Queens Ledger. He's performed in Off-Off Broadway shows, poured artisanal wines for collectors and enophiles alike, taught tennis, and held a handful of other odd jobs along the way. His work has appeared in Mississippi Review, RiverSedge, Monkeybicycle, Thieves' Jargon, Circle Magazine, Plum Ruby Review, The Rose & Thorn, Nexus, and elsewhere. His debut novel "Shades of Luz" is published by All Things That Matter Press. He is still looking for a lost Jawa action figure in the sands of Jones Beach.
