About John

John H. Loase was born in Garrison, New York. A small, isolated community, he would often wake to a terrible racket of birds settled over the marshland adjacent to his home.

He moved to Scarsdale, New York and then to Pleasantville, New York in the subsequent ten years. He had a second home, however, one shared amongst each of these three sites. His mother and father, both college professors, would spend their summers in the near untouched wilderness of the Adirondacks. From the days of his infancy, John climbed mountains (in his father’s rucksack), fished pike, and was assaulted by swarms of black flies.

Life brought John H. Loase to Tamil Nadu, India where he served as a missionary amongst a number of secluded mountainous communities in the Kodaikanal hills. His success in travel led him to Seoul, South Korea at the sponsorship of one Professor Lee from Concordia College of Bronxville.

He currently resides in Guangzhou, China where he teaches Business English at Guangdong Communication Polytechnic.
