Although the majority of John's life has been dedicated to the travel industry as a PR executive in both the airline and cruise industry, he says "the most intriguing part was my 15 years on Los Angeles area radio stations, from early 1992 to the summer of 2007." He began his travel radio career at KABC then moved to KKGO/KMZT where he was the host and co-producer a 24/7 travel feature, and in July 2002, he attained a long held dream of joining the CBS radio station in Los Angeles, KNX1070 News radio. Based on journeys to 51 countries, John's written and broadcast over five thousand travel features for his radio show "John Clayton's Travel With A Difference." He says his segments take his audience on "offbeat trips to places around the world, where I give people vacation ideas most have never thought about, because they've never heard of them - and they're written and presented in an entertaining and fun way - hence the title Travel With A Difference."

Her dream came true with the opportunity to spend 6 weeks of her summer in Quito, Ecuador through a spiritual formation program.
