John is currently in his last year completing his M.M. in Musical Theatre at the University of Central Oklahoma. He has a degree in theater from Oklahoma State University and Dance from Oklahoma City University. John worked in theatre in New York, and regional theatres across the country. Prior to returning to graduate school, he worked in the banking industry in mortgage/real estate as an underwriter. He fell into that arena when he left New York to apply for graduate school in Colorado and lived there for a year prior to being accepted to the University of Colorado at Boulder. John returned to Oklahoma and remained in mortgage/real estate. He is thrilled to be working at Southern Hills Christian Church and is thankful for all the kindness that has been shown to him.
