John S Martinson
Consultant, Influencer, and Blogger in Paradise Valley, Arizona
I co-founded the China Mist Tea Company in my garage in 1982 and over 34 years co-nurtured China Mist into a national and international foodservice iced tea brand.
In 2016, a pivotal year, I earned an Executive Master of Sustainability Leadership (EMSL) from Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability.
Today, I am an advocate for renewable energy, electric vehicles and EV infrastructure. I currently drive a 2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance.
I am a natural capitalist, promoting the protection and sustainability of natural capital through market-based solutions supported by appropriate policy.
A promoter of ASU’s School of Sustainability, College of Integrative Sciences and Arts, and Center for Science and the Imagination, I am also a brand ambassador for the Rocky Mountain Institute and serve on Arizona Advisory Councils for Common Sense Media and Green Living Magazine.
I blog about sustainability and Tesla road tripping at teslaroadtrip.blog and also administer the Facebook Group "Tesla Road Trippers."
Born and raised in New York’s Hudson River Valley, I moved to the Phoenix, Arizona, area in 1976. I am married to Suzanne Pickett Martinson and we have two teens.
