As a two-time World Champion and Vancouver 2010 Olympic Champion, “Johnny Mo” is now the beloved face of Team Canada Curling. John was born in Ottawa, Ontario, and now lives in Calgary, Alberta, where he works as a firefighter with the Chestermere Fire Service. In addition to being an Olympic gold medalist, John also has his bachelor’s degree in kinesiology, is a personal trainer and is also a certified holistic nutritionist. For fun, John says he likes to do “anything outdoors… fishing, hiking, camping, golf, beach volleyball, and also cooking and traveling.”

Passionate about nutrition and cooking, John plans to attend culinary school, so we can’t wait for the Gabriella’s Kitchen™ recipes he will be cooking up! John lovesGabriella’s Kitchen™ pasta because it “provides quality complex carbohydrates that sustains my energy for long periods of time and is a good protein source to help rebuild my muscle tissue post-exercise.” Some words of wisdom from John are that, “It’s amazing what a team can accomplish when no one cares who gets the credit.” He also stands by the quote, “Be the change you want to see in this world,” which fits beautifully with the vision of Gabriella’s Kitchen™ – to change the way the world eats by providing Better For You foods!”
