“To awaken people to see and accept their shadows.”

After recovering from cancer, John created “The Reluctant Brotherhood,” a weekly support call for men all over the counter who are recovering from cancer.  

John has also been involved for ten years in “Beepball,” a competitive form of softball for non-sighted people. As an outfield “spotter,” John calls out “quadrant instructions” to the coed fielders when a ball is headed their way. 

John has been active in the Minnesota Men’s Center since its inception in the early 80’s, and served as an early chair for 5 years.  Their space has been critical for many men’s organizations in the Twin Cities, dealing with issues ranging from divorce to LGBT.
