In his free time, John enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. They love to travel, exercise, mountain bike, snow ski, go on mission trips with their church, and scuba dive. In college, John served as a volunteer fire fighter and emergency medical technician. He also enjoys politics and sharing ideas with Common Good (chaired by his uncle Philip Howard, a best-selling author and lawyer in New York City), which is a nonpartisan reform coalition with the goal of restoring the freedom of officials and citizens to use common sense.
