"John, you really should bag the corporate world and start pursuing your travel writing career already!"

Encouragement like that never really sank in when I heard it, until it was my own boss who told me that. Intially out to become a behavioral psychologist, I procrastinated too long on graduate school and got lost somewhere in the rungs of the corporate ladder.

The nickname "Johnny Corporate" spawned from my best friend, Mike, who always pokes fun at me, saying that I don't belong in the corporate world, but that I'm trapped here. My writing inspiration correlates nicely with my insatiable appetite for domestic and international travel. Funny stuff just seems to collide with me when I travel. There's simply no other way to put it.

A trip to Southern California in the summer of 2008-- which I somehow got my company to pay for-- marked the arrival of my passion for travel. Road Warrior, Air Commander, Walking Renegade, call me what you will; I'm out there for spontaneous adventure that even Frommer can't anticipate.
