After running his own practice and serving in several advisor development roles for five years, John sought the opportunity to partner with an established team to create greater impact. That search lead to his joining the Northwestern Mutual Chicago office in 2021. In his free time, John enjoys reading thought provoking books about the human psyche, attending Broadway shows, spending time with his girlfriend, Maggie, and, of course, spending Sundays on the couch glued to NFL Sunday Ticket.
