Originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, John migrated to sunny California in 2020 amidst the chaos of the Covid-19 pandemic. A musician of split passions, he feels equally at home conducting choral and chamber ensembles as he does laying down basslines in vocal pop and jazz groups. John is a conductor, composer, baritone, pianist, sound engineer, and avid hobbyist.
John holds a BM in Choral Education and an MM in Choral Conducting from the University of Utah. He is currently the Associate Artistic Director of the San Fernando Valley Master Chorale and San Fernando Valley Chorale and sings with the Pacific Chorale, Jingle 5, The Other Reindeer Carolers. He is a new member of the Contemporary Choral Collective of Los Angeles and Tonality and is Director of Music and Technology at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Studio City.
