Originally from Hammond, Louisiana, John joined the BPC family in 2022. He currently holds the roles of Director of Library and Information Services and Assistant Professor of English & History. When asked how God has impacted his career, he stated, “I believe my love of learning is inspired by God. In my intellectual journey, I have always tried to integrate my Christian faith with my pursuit of the intellectual life. It amazes me how all my previous experiences have prepared me for my current position at BPC.” John’s desire to pursue God’s calling in his life is evident through his dedication to librarianship.
