As George Harrison once said, "If you don't know where your going, any road will take you there..." John Torcello's writing is introspective, insightful and provocative; ever aware and mindful of the path travelled.
Currently residing in Los Angeles, California, John hails from a small community in Western New York State called Batavia.
A graduate of the University of Toronto, Faculty of Music; he has a Bachelor of Music degree in Composition. He also holds an MBA in Marketing/Management from Woodbury University in Burbank, California.
John is an accomplished musician; appearing on occasion, as part of the orchestra, as a classical accordionist, with ensembles such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic in venues including the Hollywood Bowl, new Disney Concert Hall and Dorothy Chandler Music Center.
John was also a co-owner in the successful DVD Design, Compression and Authoring company called speeDVD that provided DVD-Video processing services to various Hollywood studio and distribution companies for 14 years.
Writing is an avocation for John; along with his musical SoundSketches constructions, his creative writing pieces are meant to be thoughtful exercises for the mind and heart of the reader and listener.
