About John

I write about nature and culture.

My book of nature essays, Red Dirt Country, was published in 2019. I've written other books, including a volume of immersion reporting, Pecan America, as well as content for such outlets as the Harvard Divinity Bulletin, Notre Dame Magazine, Modern Farmer, and the Atlantic. My work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and cited in the Best American Essays and the Best American Sports Writing. 


I'm also a keen photographer. In recent years I've photographed in Cuba, Italy, Vancouver Island, the Bahamas, Charleston, New York City, San Francisco, New Orleans, Florida, and northern Michigan. My images have appeared in books, magazines, and newspapers across North America.
