John was born on Earth the son of two civilian scientists. Due to their work John’s parents moved a lot and John spent his childhood and adolescence living in such places as Colorado, San Francisco, The United Kingdom as well as a couple of colonies on Mars, Vulcan and even a four month stay at a Klingon Colony. John along with the older researches children was privately tutored and received an excellent education. As John grew he began to love all of the changes of scenario he had. He loved getting to go to new places and experience new things and from a young age knew Star Fleet was for him.
As he grew up John grew to also love sports and being very active. For that reason when he signed up for Star Fleet he began a career in security. While his parents did not speak down about this idea they did make it clear that they wished he had chosen to begin a more “scientific” career. For that reason John minored in science, where he was a decent but not exceptional student. John did however excel at security work. He loved the responsibility, the physical demand, and also the knowledge that he would be making a difference.
When John graduated he was assigned to the USS Achievement where he began to fit in well with others and truly begin his Star Fleet Career. After several years onboard the vessel while at the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade John suffered an injury during an away mission. A beam from an alien technology they were investigating shot off and hit John in the eyes leaving him temporarily blind. Thankfully, due to the amazing work of the Chief Medical Officer and her staff they were able to treat John’s problem long enough for them to get him to Star Fleet Medical Headquarters. Over the course of several months John was treated and eventually his sight fully returned though he would be required to wear glasses the rest of his life.
John’s recovery was a slow one. Even with his sight returned it took him almost a full year to see things clearly and adapt. During that recovery time John went back to Earth where he worked at the Security offices at Star Fleet Headquarters. During that time John was occasionally loaned to Star Fleet Academy to serve as a guest lecturer for some security courses. Eventually John fell in love with being around young students who were eagerly waiting to start their career. For the remainder of that year John went and got his teaching degrees and when he was fully released from Star Fleet Medical he applied for an instructor position at the Academy and was hired as a Security Instructor.
John taught a variety of security courses for several years and established himself as the Head of the Security Department. John enjoyed the extra duties and found that he rather liked the administrative side of the Academy.
His success in the position eventually led John to being named the Dean of Admissions for Star Fleet Academy. While in this position John oversaw the recruitment and training of Star Fleet Cadets and Star Fleet Instructors. He worked hand-in-hand with the Dean of Evaluations and the Superintendent to ensure that the Academy was running smoothly.
John served in that position for several years before being named the Dean of Evaluations. This was more of an administrative role than he had previously served in but did allow him to continue to oversee the training of new Instructors as well as assisting the Superintendent in any way that was needed.
