A huge welcome to our new Director of Sales, John! We can’t wait for you to meet and get to know him.

John

What drew you to Magneti?
Definitely the people. There is a certain comradery that everyone seems to have across the board. As cheesy as this sounds, the energy that everyone radiates is like a magnet in so many aspects – it drew me in.

Who would play you in a movie?
Eric Stonestreet because he is so honest, funny and witty. I see a lot of similarities when it comes to that.

What is the scariest thing you have ever done for fun?
Before my 21st birthday, my friends and I did a 100 ft. tandem bungy jump…I am deathly afraid of heights so you can imagine how that went. I am not sure how they talked me into it, but needless to say, have never been so frightened in my life.

If you could visit any place in the world, where would it be?
Israel! I want to experience the history, archeology and culture first hand. Coming from a Christian background, it would be powerful to watch the Jewish, Muslim and Christian cultures intertwine.

Biggest pet peeve?
My biggest pet peeve is when someone doesn’t empty the washing machine and put the wet clothes in the dryer. My second biggest pet peeve is when someone doesn’t take the clothes out of the dryer and put them away.

What is something you can do better than anyone else you know?
The cello – I had the privilege of working with Wendy Smith-Butler who asked me to sub for her during her sabbatical as first chair. We played the Symphony Number Nine – it was such an incredible experience. I have always been musically inclined and still buy tickets to the Denver opera and symphony.

Are you a morning or night person?
Both! I stay up late and get up early. I guess I am more of a night person because I am not friendly in the morning until I have my coffee.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you want to have with you?
My journal, my Bible and water.

If you could invent a color, what would it look like and be called?
It would be a cross between a royal purple and royal blue. I would call it steel blue.
