John is a worldly fisherman who has seen his fair share of adventure! Raised in New Jersey he begain his fishing career working on a charter boat. Not long after he and his brother bought their first boat, the FV Barbara Lee and began fishing the Hudson Canyon for tilefish and working the Grand Banks for groundfish and swordfish. From their his fishing career became even more exciting chasing fish in Namibia, South Africa, Trinadad and Hawaii. Most recently John has been hanging his hat in San Diego, fishing for tuna and swordfish on the FV Pacific Horizon. All this experience and travel has given him deep respect of the health of American fisheries "The United States has the most heavily regulated fisheries in the world, unfortunately many other countries don't manage their fisheries as well - and when people buy that fish, it hurts the American fishermen that are doing the right thing"

John's favorite fish is Opah, broiled or grilled with minimal seasoning. On the boat his go-to seasoning is "Montreal Steak Seasoning".
