Prior to joining Enron in 1994, he was a vice president at American Hunter Energy, and before that, he acted as director of corporate sales at Pacific Gas & Electric Company in San Francisco.

This is a high-risk, high-reward business. John holds a B.S. in Mathematics and an M.S. in Computer Science from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo (earned in a prior millennium).
