Founding Member

John has been involved in the music and arts community of Tidewater Virginia since the 1970’s.  Working in and around the music industry through commercial sales, repair and sound at Music and Sound of Norfolk as well as Sound and Electronics of Norfolk during the 1970’s and 1980’s.

John is an avid patron and supporter of the Arts community both in Tidewater and abroad.   After supporting the first production from AIC John enthusiastically joined the cause to bring performing arts opportunities to everyone of all abilities with the heart and desire to perform.

“The depth of emotion and joy given from the Inclusion performers was overwhelming and should be emulated within the performing arts all over the world.  The AIC performance shows an untapped source of amazing talent and unique entertainment chemistry that I’ve never seen before.  It’s wonderful!’
