John has been instrumental to bringing DCA’s methodology to a series of extremely important efforts in early childhood education, health care and overall community well being in the Mississippi Delta region.  He shepherded the Delta Health Alliance application to become one of the federally-designated Promise Communities and helped plan and implement the Indianola Promise Community initiative.  John was active in the MS Center for Educational Innovation’s (MSCEI) successful mission to establish early childhood education as a statewide priority.  His connection to Mississippi began with DCA’s work for SPARK, a national early education initiative by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. On the other end of the education pipeline, John served on DCA’s technical assistance team for Lumina Foundation’s national Goal 2025 post-secondary attainment initiative.

At the Knight Foundation, John served as a program director administering a regional grant budget in California and Colorado focused on school readiness, primarily for low-income and immigrant children and families. In addition, he provided consulting and training in such areas as strategic planning; board and staff development and management; needs assessment; volunteer development; financial management and performance evaluation.

Earlier, he was a program officer for the California Community Foundation and served as associate director for the United Way of Greater Los Angeles’s Kellogg Training Center. He began his career in banking with Citicorp and Chase Manhattan.

John holds a Masters in Public Administration from the University of Southern California and a Bachelor of Science from Cornell University.
