People tend to think of the leaders in our nations capital as out of touch, but they couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to Canberra’s most influential man. John saw a distinct lack of people wearing skinny jeans, walking fixed gear bikes, and talking about bands you’ve never heard of – and decided to forget all that hipster shit and start up bike polo instead. Although we’re not convinced it wasn’t just so he’d have another place to check-in at on 4square. Here’s a little more about John.
