A native of Kensington, Md., John has been staining his fingers on The Washington Post print edition since grade school when he read the comics over Cheerios every morning. John received a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Vermont. He made the leap to journalism in graduate school while still receiving a master’s in biology from Harvard University’s extension program.
