About Us

John founded Survival Resources with the goal of offering the best survival products available.  John, and his wife Denise, strive to offer quality gear at reasonable prices and provide unsurpassed customer service.

John ran his own survival school for many years and has been a guest instructor at various survival gatherings around the country.  He has also been featured in an article in the New York Times, and appeared on national television as a guest on the Martha Stewart Show, showing how to make a survival kit.  


John is also an avid writer and the author of seven books to include "Build the Perfect Survival Kit" and "Stay Alive - Survival Skills You Need." After the publication of his first book, "Build the Perfect Survival Kit," John realized there was an absence of businesses that specialized in providing survival products and equipment, especially survival kit components. So he started selling them. Customers starting asking if John would design and build some ready made survival kits. At first, he declined, wanting people to build their own kits from the components he offered. However, after some more prompting, he started designing and offering readymade kits and they became an instant success. 

Denise is the Sales Manager for Survival Resources. Originally from Switzerland, Denise is an avid outdoors person, who has often hiked the Swiss Alps and backpacked for weeks into the Grand Canyon.  Denise was featured on the cover of the New York Times Escape Section when they did an article about survival courses we offered at that time.  She is well rounded in the ways of self-reliance and can garden as easily as making bread from scratch. She is a true asset to Survival Resources!
