After seasons in the Craigieburn Range, Canada, and Japan; John traded the indignities of ski bum life for a lucrative and glamorous career as an NZMGA assistant ski guide. In between paid endorsements for skin care products and A-list parties, he guides in New Zealand and Japan each year. Originally from Australia, he returns each spring and autumn to enjoy its excellent rock climbing, surfing, and fine selection of yoghurts. In his spare time, John works as an environmental consultant and is regular contributor to the Whitney Houston fan wiki website.
John loves sharing wild places and giving people the skills and confidence to explore the mountains.
