John commutes from Wilmington, Delaware and is a heavy consumer of podcasts and audiobooks. Walking by his office you might hear instrumental guitar and banjo music, which helps him concentrate. When he is not at the office, you can often find him running on trails near the Brandywine River or hiking in a National Park with his three boys and his wife. He also drives a pickup truck and is game for some karaoke pretty much anytime, anywhere.
