Backstory Behind Stephanie and Guest

I met John in 2011 when we both ended up in the same camp at Burning Man. It does not take long to realize there is something special about John. He is intensely in tune with what is important in life.  His words and purpose are clear and fierce. Ask John about his daughter and  you will get an undeniable sense of the deep well that is John’s heart. John represents his work of  “the embodied man” to the fullest. – Stephanie Michele
