With an electrical engineering degree, John began his career working out of Pittsburgh, PA for a railroad signaling company while also Volunteering for the local rescue squad.

His experience working with people in writing data collection software allowed him to merge his talents with his interest as an EMT. He realized that the daily checks being performed at his station were very cumbersome and inefficient. He knew there was a better way. After five years of development and testing, in 2018, he announced his data collection product Check-4-It.
