The charming character of Carson Valley and a love of the mountains drew John and his family to the Carson City area from the Central Coast of California. John grew up in Lompoc, CA and later attended Community College at nearby Allan Hancock College and completed his BS degree in Earth Science at California Polytechnic San Luis Obispo. After working as a well-site geologist for five years, John moved on to work at the Patagonia Distribution Center in Reno, NV before landing at Bently Heritage, where he is thrilled to work in the community in which he lives. John brings a decade of warehouse and manufacturing experience to the production team, and is excited to contribute to the Bently Heritage vision.
Living in the greater Carson City area provides John, along with his wife Nicole and daughter Sydney, plenty of time to enjoy the outdoors and mountain towns they love. When not barbecuing and relaxing at home in Carson City, they can be found hiking or backpacking the many trails of the Eastern Sierra, or camping and canoeing on any given weekend during the summer. He is also an avid reader of fantasy novels and collector (consumer) of fine craft beers and whiskeys.
