John is a life-long resident of Sebastian County and the oldest of 17 children. A graduate of Mansfield High School and the University of Arkansas, earning a degree in Chemical Engineering, I’ve worked 35 years as an engineer and 6 years as a high school Chemistry Teacher.

John has been married for 44 years with his wife Pamela. He has many hobbies but mostly enjoys fishing, motorcycle adventure riding, and reading about philosophy and science. His interest in philosophy is what led John to join the Libertarian Party, officially a member since 2001. His personal philosophy is that freedom is more than an end to itself. It is the condition that provides value, meaning, and purpose to our lives.
