Following graduation, John landed a job at Nike WHQ. After interning for Nike in 2015, John was happy to return to the company he loves. Currently he works as a Social Media Specialist. He works on a team that manages the day-to-day voice of Nike’s numerous social media accounts.

At Westside, John competed in soccer, cross country, and track. He was also part of Student Council for three years and traveled to Thailand with the annual team. His favorite memory from his time at Westside came from the Thailand trip. Playing soccer in rural Thailand with kids who didn’t speak the same language helped open his eyes to how he could share Christ’s love with people with something as simple as sports.
