John was born and raised in downtown Toronto to Italian parents who made the long journey to Canada to start a new life. He first caught the acting/filmmaking bug in Grade 8. It was then that Aiko Suzuki (sister of David Suzuki) came to his class and taught a course in super 8 filmmaking. John played his first leading role as a blind boy in a film shot in the then new Spadina subway station.Nevertheless, it would take some time and a diversion into athletics before John would return to his passion for the arts.

It was his speed that would catch the attention of the football team and in his senior year he would be awarded an Athletic Scholarship to Simon
