About johngreenink
I'm a painter, musician and interactive software and web designer living and working in Boston, Massachusetts, US. I also write freelance for Fragrantica.com. I'm originally from Connecticut, and studied painting and photography and earned my BFA at the Cooper Union in New York City. I taught English as a Second Language in London, UK for a few years in the early 00's. My music projects are under the project name Ichigatsu, ('January', in Japanese.) I'm exhibiting at the Tsongas Art Center at Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts (Thoreau's refuge) in January 2014. I have a great interest in scents, scent history and chemistry, and explore these as an ever-growing side-interest.
