Born in Glasgow, John grew up with basic Scottish personality traits. He is, polite but reserved, forthright and honest, social and friendly, reliable, and still enjoys a good time. He brought all this with him when his family relocated to Glendale, CA when he was 11.
He spent 15 years there until he moved to Riverside, CA. It was here that he set up a 3x3 table, folding chair and an avocado green rotary phone to establish an electrical construction business which grew into a multimillion-dollar concern. The economy had other ideas however, and John was invited to move to Seattle, WA where he exercised his entrepreneurial skills to develop construction projects for a local contractor.
In 2000, John brought his skills to Palm Desert where he worked for 10 years to successfully rebuild a local electrical contractors' business. "I was in the land of golf, and I need to rebuild my game," became John's mantra. John got his real estate license and worked part time as an agent. He also threw himself into woodworking and rebuilt the kitchen cabinets in his home.
It was 2019 when the world of business development called him out of retirement, and he spent the next two years as a project consultant for another electrical contractor to oversee the complete remodel of the Palm Springs Airport.
