John Montgomery was born traveling; he’s the son of two U.S. Air Force officers, and his childhood spanned the USA and Far East. When he and Erynn married, they began dog-earing their passports together. Even after the arrival of their fourth daughter, the journeys continue. When John needs a break from the feminine energy of the family home, he escapes lobo solitario to locations remote, undiscovered, and extreme. Prior to founding LANDED, John financed hotels and other commercial real estate for more than 15 years. These days, he smiles a lot.
