Experts Biography

John

Topics

John won millions of dollars in the New York lottery. He was a struggling performance artist when he got his lucky break. He went from living in modest apartment and owing thousands in debt, to living in a luxury condo overlooking Manhattan and needing a financial advisor.

His wealth has afforded him experiences he could never have imagined that have made him very happy: regular shopping trips to Rome and opulent vacations. Despite this, he continues to cherish the things he most loved in life before his win – his friends. He recently hosted a huge party with them to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his win.

After years of neglecting his performance work he has recently started rehearsals again and hopes to be back on stage soon.
