I have an insatiable curiosity for online technology, digital publishing (I am obsessed), and many forms of entertainment.
My life is anything but boring and I’ve been incredibly blessed to have worked as an engineer and executive in Fortune 50 companies as well as launch and exit a few really cool startups. Every year is wildly-different than the last (take a look at my 2012 Year in Review for example).
Generally I spend my time blogging like it’s going out of style (since 2001), building an incredible mobile product Pressgram (interviews by CBS Atlanta, Fox News, and Forbes recently), advising, mentoring, and coaching other startups and entrepreneurs, speaking at conferences about what I’m passionate about, and spending time with my amazing wife and two daughters (my most important startup!).
I have also begun a journey of sharing my experiences as one who finds himself on the Autistic Spectrum.
This is one of my favorite pictures of all time:
I graduated from Georgia Tech with a BS in Science, Technology and Culture (focus on post-modern philosophy and end-user psychology) and have two graduate degrees, a Masters in Christian Education and a Masters in Biblical Studies from Dallas Seminary. I focused my studies on techno-anthropology and behavioral science. I also am a certified pre-marriage/marriage counselor through DTS and Prepare/Enrich.
Oh, I love video games but can’t seem to find enough time to get to play them. Someday…
Bonus Q&A: Why “John.do”? I answer that often-asked question here.
