John (Jean François) was born in Southwestern France and came to the US at age 11 directly to San Francisco, which he loves and considers his home city. John has lived in Madrid, London and Las Vegas for extended period of time, but always comes back home to the Bay Area.  He is try-lingual in Spanish, French and English.

John graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA in History and obtained an MA in Education from San Francisco State University.  John has an extensive background in International Education in senior leadership roles and has managed large global teams.  Listening to the client’s needs and wishes and providing practical solutions and answers has been his driving ethos.
