He free-lances for The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo, and others, appears often on TV, and delivers weekly essays for Michigan Radio and occasionally NPR, awarding him the PRNDI prize for nation's best commentary in 2014. He is a popular public speaker, who teaches at the University of Michigan, where the students awarded him the Golden Apple in 2009. John is also a decent Spanish speaker, an average hockey player, and a poor piano player, but he still enjoys all three! He lives in Ann Arbor with his wife and son.
