Hello, my name is John – visual creative,
social introvert, and snack connoisseur.

I started my journey by teaching myself how to read and write code, build websites, and designing graphics on Wordpress and Myspace. 

Enamored by the beauty of the design process, I enrolled in my high schools information technology program; I continued my studies at Frostburg State University – where I graduated with a B.F.A. in Art & Design.  

I pronounce GIF as “gift,” with a silent “t.”  I enjoy taking self-portraits and long walks between my room and the refrigerator.  For 10+ years I’ve been pushing pixels and exploring the world wide web – I haven’t stepped away from the computer screen since.
