John has spent more than 25 years working in community development and social justice across Canada. He has consulted in places as far as India. From 2005-2011, he developed the social planning role for the Resort Municipality of Whistler in anticipation of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

In 2014, he helped raise the most successful crowdfunding for a public art piece at the time: Granville Island’s cement siloes, which were transformed into “Giants" by artists Os Gemeos, as part of the 2014 Vancouver Biennale public art festival.
