John Oliver earned Bachelor degrees in Political Science and Religious Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1969. In the 1970's, he discovered his passion for homebuilding, and has spent most of his life as an artisan building contractor in California and Hawaii. In a chance encounter with Bishop Nichijo Shaka on the rural Big Island in 1983, he found a direct use for his liberal arts education. His collaboration with Rev. Shaka resulted in the biography, "Nichijo", copyrighted in 1986, but never published. In 2014, living in semi-retirement in Sonoma County, California, he finally found the time to complete the thoughtful rewrite that was begun nearly 30 years before. "Nichijo: The Testimony of John Provoo" was released in October of 2014.
