Our contributing editor, John covers worldwide crime stats and criminal court cases. One of John’s fondest childhood memories is sneaking out at night to read evening newspapers left in the living room: they were banned as the “adults only” type of media. That forbidden fruit made him pursue journalism and graduate from the University of Auckland with a Media and Communication Studies degree. John moved to Virginia in 2010, arriving right in the middle of Springfest riots; covering them was his first truly intense job as a reporter, and he has been chasing that adrenaline high ever since. But his main goal is to be as fast and correct as possible when it comes to reporting crimes. John believes that the Internet must be a source of objective information that saves lives. He currently lives in Vancouver with his family and enjoys gardening: you can literally find him working on his articles among the parsley patches.
