After graduating with a BA in Film and Television from the University of Notre Dame, John moved to Chicago to pursue a career as a freelance cinematographer and producer.
As a director of photography, he has traveled around the world and back and has shot dozens of projects, ranging from award-winning short films (Last Seen on Dolores Street, Rendezvous) and feature films (Glass City, LAID, Nightlights) to music videos (Nye's "Surface?, My Beloved Tragedy's "Ohio Sky") and documentaries (the Bangladesh documentary Strong Bodies Fight, the upcoming USA Wrestling documentary Return to Glory). He has tamed film and video alike, shooting on 16mm as well as the RED MX and the newest line of DSLR and large-sensor camcorders.
When not shooting, John serves as producer of Glass City Films, through which he has overseen as producer and lensed the short films Rendezvous, Hangers, The Sleepover, Under the Table, and Honeybees. He has also produced a trio of feature films in Glass City, Happily After (his directorial debut) and Separation Anxiety, in addition to several music videos and side projects.
