Welcome! 👋

My name is John, and I'm a marketer and creative technologist with a background in the performing arts.

This blog is about the ideas and stories that resonate with me, which I write about in hopes that they help open doors for others. I'm interested in how the world works, what we can do to make it better, and how we can live more intentionally.

I'm also deeply curious about the interplay between art and technology, and the ways in which both of them enrich our lives.
