Taking a career opportunity with The Biltmore Hotel (Coral Gables, FL), John managed a department of 100+ employees and was challenged with creating and maintaining luxury standards in an independent hotel.

Opportunities created themselves for John as a restaurant critic and food blogger, writing for publications including the Zagat 2013 Los Angeles guide, Miami New Times, and LA Weekly. During this period, John took on projects as an independent hospitality consultant and worked with small to medium-sized restaurants and hotels to improve areas such as customer service, sales, and menu development. Settling in Los Angeles, John took the role of Director of Sales and Marketing with Yamashiro Hollywood and tripled event revenue within two years while bringing in filmings and venue buyouts for companies including Netflix, HBO, and Disney; creating tremendous exposure for the storied restaurant.

In addition to seeing through the business development of Contempo Aesthetics, John is a founding faculty member of  Galderma's GAIN Business Program as well as a member of Allergan's MedSpa Advisory Board.
