John is a co-founder of Whale Tail Outdoors, an independent outdoor film company. He is a fourth generation Colorado native who was raised by an avid hunter and outdoorsman. John's desire for hunting began when his father would take him and his brothers hunting into the high country of the Rocky Mountains in search for elusive elk with his homemade longbow. He enjoys all hunting adventures and pursuing the different game that resides in the West. However, John's biggest passion is stalking the elk and mule deer in the vast and green high country. John currently resides in Denver with his wonderful wife and two children.
