He recently co-owned Indigo & Olive, a retail store specializing in home, garden and pet products. John has four dogs – Tilly, Jackie, Bailey and Molly – as well as two cats, Emma and Katie. Molly, a recently rescued Chihuahua, first met John while she was staying in the Woods at Cortaro Farms, awaiting her forever home. Molly was very scared and initially growled and snapped at John, but very quickly the two bonded, and Molly eventually joined John’s household. Now the two are best friends. In his spare time, John enjoys gardening, woodworking, traveling and spending a day off with his dogs.
