John Salutare is a native New Yorker who caught the acting bug at a young age, thanks to his grandmother Dorothy. She managed a video store, which John took full advantage of, watching every movie in the store; he had an eye for movies and even made recommendations and reviews to customers. John's love for movies and acting only intensified with age. He decided to pursue a career as an actor after graduating from Siena College, where he received a B.S. in Marketing & Management while starting for the 1aa Siena Saints football team. John felt life experience was an important part of being an actor, so he set out to do just that; traveling to build his life resume before taking the next step. The next step was an acting workshop for beginners. John auditioned and was accepted into the program, which served as an introduction to the business. John used this as a foundation to build from; going on to work with private acting coaches before enrolling in Esper Studios in New York City. John completed the summer intensive at Esper Studios and has since lived, studied and worked in New York and Los Angles. John lives in New York and is avidly taking classes to strengthen his craft as he continues to advance his career and establish himself among the industries names to know.
