Driven by the ambition to be awesome at everything, John is constantly seeking to expand his experience and knowledge across a variety of fields and activities. In his early years, John spent his time exploring the national parks and mountain passes of his home state of California.
While working on his B.S. in International Affairs, he worked as a product test technician at Magpul, where he validated the capabilities and performance of new products prior to release. This is where he discovered his calling: contributing to the success and stellar reputation of the Magpul team and delivering innovative solutions. John has since combined his experience and passion to become a member of the Core team as well as one of Magpul’s Law Enforcement and International Sales specialists. He previously served in the 75th Ranger Regiment as a Special Reconnaissance and Surveillance team leader, where he conducted several direct action, special reconnaissance, and high-value target missions over the course of four deployments. He is an adventure-seeker that is passionate about exploring new terrain and pushing himself beyond his limits; he enjoys sharing his experiences with those also determined to push beyond their limits to attain personal growth. When John isn't trekking through the mountains of Colorado or trying new action sports, you can find him stirring up an Old-Fashioned with good company.
