Born February 12, 1972 in Wellington, New Zealand, John and his sister Sharon were raised by their Mother Helen in the sunny climes of Nelson until they migrated to Brisbane, Australia in 1984. His passion for sport and performance were perfectly suited for the stunt industry where his 190 cm, 100+ kilo physique excelled in the action/war genres. With doubling roles on the WWE films 'The Marine" and 'The Condemned' and international experience on 'Alexander and 'Legend of Zorro', the love of acting began to flourish. Comfortable on both sides of the industry department fence, John is attracting roles that combine his physicality and acting talents with roles on 'I, Frankenstein, 'San Andreas', Pirates of the Caribbean' and the Australian thriller 'Red Billabong'.
