“Be sincere. Be brief. Be seated.” — Franklin D. Roosevelt
This guy knows how to win over a room. After a career that included professional acting in New York, John provides Taft clients with the benefits of his interest and expertise in speech, locution and organizational communications. He has a bachelor’s degree in English literature from Williams College. Following graduation with honors from the Yale School of Management, John added business communications skills to his repertoire by organizing fundraising and communications for the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. Later, as president of the American Boychoir School in Princeton, his work brought sharp increases in enrollment, annual budget, faculty, and the school’s endowment. His community activities include board service for the Princeton Symphony Orchestra; the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association, which he chaired; and the Waldorf School of Princeton.
