John Harvey


John Harvey was born outside of Boston Massachusetts, in a sleepy little ship building town famed for being “Home of the Fried Clam.” During his childhood, John became well rounded in sports such as hockey, tennis, golf, lacrosse, baseball, and football. He was raised primarily by his father, after his parents separated when he was six years old. Nature, animals, and BB guns, were among his favorite hobbies until he grew old enough to be interested in girls.John attended a co-educational boarding school in Pomfret Connecticut, where he played varsity sports, and did his best not to get into trouble. At this type of private institution, dorm masters go to sleep for the night, leaving the students to hang out freely. Alcohol and marijuana were among the most popular recreations in the dorms. Paired with vigorous academics in the day time, it was the late night parties that prepared him for college.St. Lawrence University seemed to be the perfect match. Having lived in a dormitory since he was fifteen, John was adept for college at the start. He joined the SLU Karate Team, where he trained for four years, receiving a brown belt in Isshinryu Karate Do. As a Fine Art major, the ability to be creative in the classroom was essential, in order to gain merit within the department. John minored in Religious Studies. He wanted to understand how people could base their lives around religions they did not know themselves.John has been living in Thailand since graduation from university. He maintains a small independent restoration business in the United States, where he summers. That makes the balance between work and play all the more palatable for him. Black Arts in South East Asia began as a private story for only his few closest friends. The ones who never made the journey to the Far East themselves. However, it was through their feedback, that this wild and debaucherous tale has arisen to the public spotlight where it is today.
