John, along with his personal friends Ron Zaidman and Charles Belyea, was involved in the creation of Five Branches University in Santa Cruz, CA. He was in the first class of the University while Ron and Charles became known as the Founders who ran the school while John completed the course work. After graduation and becoming licensed to practice Acupuncture, John then became the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Academic Director of Five Branches University for nearly six years. He helped create the curriculum for each course for the entire four years of academic classes required to graduate and was the liaison between students and the administration as well as performing the same role with faculty members. He was also responsible for creating the University’s library. John taught several courses at the University. In the western science division, he taught Anatomy and Physiology, Inorganic, Organic and Biochemistry. In the TCM division he taught Chinese Medical Theory, Acupuncture Point Location and the Full Review course which prepared students to take the State Board Licensing Examination. He also created the “two-year examination” and the “final four-year examination.” After stepping down from his positions at Five Branches University, he remained involved by being on the first Board of Directors.
