Member at Large
Board of Directors Member: March 2018 – March 2022
John is a local musician, graphic artist, and painter, who retired to Southport after a career as a paramedic in the Washington, DC, area, where he also taught college and organized large- and small-scale public events, including a series of cutting-edge arts festivals.
This wide-ranging experience, coupled with an academic career in theological studies, successful occupations as a youth minister and a residential builder in Boston, informs John’s delight with connecting dots. Since moving here in 2009, he has cemented his passion for the creative and performing arts as the quintessential ambassador for Up Your Arts.
