John Roa // Sophisticated Living Magazine

James Gustin photographed and creative directed the front cover and "John Roa - Second Acts" editorial article of the Nov-Dec 2016 edition of Sophisticated Living Magazine Chicago.

"John Roa is uberclassy, smart, handsome, and successful. It was difficult for me not to be totally jealous of the guy. But when I got over myself and got to know him, I saw him as the genuine, hardworking visionary that he is. We had a blast driving around the West Loop in his 1966 Ford Bronco." –James
