John is a 2007 graduate of the Leeds MBA program and is excited to be working with the current MBA population. A Kansan by birth, John did his undergraduate studies at Miami University (Ohio) before surrendering to the call of the mountains. John spent three years in Breckenridge before moving to Boulder where he worked in sales and marketing for a ski tour operator, a role that he still dabbles in today. While pursuing his MBA John focused on Marketing and Entrepreneurship. He interned and subsequently worked in marketing at IBM before deciding that a career in academia was more aligned with his interests and aptitudes. When he’s not working you can typically find John on his bike, scampering up Mt. Sanitas, or seeking out deep powder in the mountains. He is also a passionate traveler, frustrated guitarist, and chef of little repute.
