After getting his Fine Art degree with a focus in Painting and traditional photography techniques, John moved to NYC. While working as an art handler/scanner he discovered Photoshop and never looked back. Since then, John has worked for many studios throughout NYC, Chicago, LA, and Portland which he now calls home. In the 18 years that John has been retouching, he has been lucky to have been a part of major advertising campaigns for Calvin Klein, Valentino, Tommy Hilfiger, David Yurman, Disney, and Annie Leibovitz.
When not in the studio you can find John recording music, painting, hanging out with his family and spending way too much money on sushi during the weekends.
