Hi there, I'm John. A designer slash entrepreneur enamored with the choreography of brand, product, & service.
Based in Venice, CA at the moment. Previously NYC, with short stints in San Francisco, Austin, and Boston. Grew up in southern New Hampshire equal distance to the beach, city, and lakes region in a giant family.
Working on Design Systems at Netflix until mid 2021, but open to conversations. Got an interesting challenge? Let’s chat.
