=John Harding has lived and worked in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Singapore, Italy, Jamaica and Belgium. This includes work for the largest OPEC member, Saudi Aramco, a position as Deputy Assistant Commissioner of Inland Revenue in Singapore’s civil service, and a Wall Street investment analyst.
John has been a professor at Pratt Institute of Technology’s Graduate School of Engineering in New York City, at King Fahd University in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia and John Cabot University in Rome, Italy.
He has also worked for the United Nations Development Programme as a U.N. Expert in Kingston, Jamaica, and as a consultant to the United Nations Secretariat in New York.
A native-born American, John speaks Italian, French, and Spanish, Jeddah-Street-Boy Arabic and spices his conversation with a wealth of Yiddish expressions—thanks to all his Jewish stepmothers.
A book, ghostwritten by John, has just been sold by Mark Wolper to Warner Bothers. Two screenplays written by John are now in pre-production.
John is the co-author of Escape from Paradise, Amazon’s best-selling book for Singapore. For years it was assumed the book had been banned in Singapore. Only recently, did Singapore’s Media Development Authority MDA confirm by email that Escape from Paradise had never been banned.
