John Kiesow

Peace be with you. My name is John Kiesow. I’m from Franklin Wisconsin.  I started out at Country Dale School, then transitioned to St. Paul’s Franklin School. I got my diploma at Wisconsin Lutheran Highschool, and I am currently in the animation program at Milwaukee Area Technical College. During all those years, I have discovered many other different interests. Writing stories, making music, DJ lightning, dancing, puppetry, etc. It’s a lot of random interests but they all tie into my Christain faith. I hope to one day create an adult Christain animated series that ties all these interests, hobbies, and passions together.
