John took most of High School online through Escondido Classical Tutorials from which he graduated a year early in 2011. His love of the classics (in particular Leibniz and Newton) drove him to a love of chemistry and engineering. In 2010 he began working as a Assistant Viticulturist on a prestigious vineyard in Texas. At this time he used his understanding of chemistry and agriculture to perform pruning tests on roughly ten acres of vines. His research led to a change in pruning methods in the area. At this time John worked beside the state Enologist and Viticulturist. These experiences led him to choose winemaking and production as his vocation. Currently John is enrolled at South Plains College pursuing a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. He has excelled academically having won two awards from the college.
John also has a passion for music and literature, both of which consume most of his free time.
John's Classical Education has made him inquisitive about all subjects and passionate to learn.
