"There's a beautiful simplicity to getting around on a quiet, efficient, self-powered machine balanced on two wheels.  The freedom and independence I felt as a child remain to this day - an expression of pure joy.  I never regret a day out on my bike - even that desolate day in the Pyrenees that nearly broke me ended with a huge smile on my face."

*John joined the board of Charleston Moves in 2015 in order to help create a truly bicycle friendly city.

 MEDITATION

"The practices of yoga and meditation have been transformative for me.  Simple self-awareness, brought on by conscious movement and intentional stillness, continues to provide insight and evolution.  I am so thankful for all of my teachers."

*John is a 200HR RYT certified yoga instructor.  He currently teaches meditation and yoga at Mission Yoga.

"Food is fuel, it’s worth understanding how your engine runs.  It took me a long time to really figure that out.  I'm now the anomaly at restaurants - vegan, gluten free, and alcohol free.  Luckily, I love to cook, and I live and work at home.  I focus on a nutrient-dense plant-based diet to enable optimal health and wellness for myself, and for the benefit of the larger ecosystem.  I can thank my good friend Timmy Pakron, aka Mississippi Vegan, for instilling an excitement in eating plants - and for people like Brendan BrazierRich Roll and Matt Frazier for providing a roadmap for plant-based athletes." 

*Check back soon for posts on my homemade kombucha, foraging for chanterelle mushrooms and yaupon tea, and some of my favorite vegan recipes...

"Inspired by those who are not satisfied to watch from the sidelines, the incredible people who give back to the world in so many meaningful ways, I am compelled to be of service to my community and the larger ecosystem that sustains me."
