Who is he?
At age six, John decided he wanted to be a Wizard when he grew up. He’s been studying magic since — 50 years later! Today he is a professional entertainer, author and strange person. During the 1982 Knoxville World’s Fair, he successfully solved the Rubik’s Cube while blindfolded. Professor Erno Rubik thought this was the most amazing thing he had ever witnessed.
John was one of the featured entertainers at the 2008 Inaugural Ball, and he is a popular guest on television and radio programs. He has even read palms over the radio! He also enjoys speaking for Civic clubs on a variety of topics including Intuition, Memory, and Weight Reduction. His books, written under the name Jon Saint Germain — Runic Palmistry, Karmic Palmistry, and A Lover’s Guide to Palmistry– are available in bookstores and from his website. Because of his eclectic knowledge of all things magical and psychic, he has been retained as a consultant for a series of programs for the Learning Channel.
John practices what he preaches. Struggling with a lifelong eating disorder, he applied his techniques to solving the riddle of why a person would consume food when he isn’t really hungry. He found answers, and his weight dropped from almost 300 pounds to 200 pounds in a year and a half.
John is a graduate of the University of Tennessee, where he majored in Studio Art, Pellissippi State Technical Community College, where he majored in Mechanical Engineering, and Indiana University, where he earned a degree in Literary Illustration. Now he reads minds for a living. Funny how things turn out.
