More About John
HOMETOWN & CURRENT CITY: Albuquerque, New Mexico. Born, raised and staying.
HOBBIES: Camping and gardening give me time to think, while woodworking gives me an outlet to be creative. Between the two, I come up with my best ideas.
FAVORITE FOOD OR RESTAURANT: I love Mexican food. My favorite restaurants are Los Cuates and Mary & Tito’s here in Albuquerque. They both have amazing food, but it’s hard to beat Los Cuates’ margaritas. Both are great places to take your friends!
FAVORITE QUOTE: “If you’re not lead dog, the view is always the same.”
BEST GIFT I EVER RECEIVED: My wife and children—these are my life’s greatest blessings.
PEOPLE YOU ADMIRE MOST: First would be Bill Drexel; he was a good friend of mine who was wise beyond his years before he passed several years ago. And John Wayne, of course.
BEST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB: Research and development, it’s what I love to do! Creating coatings, problem solving and being able to put my 35+ years of experience as a business owner to good use.
