It’s been said that the only thing equaling John’s incisive eye for art direction is his trenchant wit — both of which he has managed to hone at many of this country’s finest advertising agencies.
Raised in Omaha and educated at the Art Center College of Design in LA, John is a bi-coastal veteran of the advertising wars. From assistant art director to Executive Creative Director, from having his name on the door to working the streets as a freelancer, he’s always been obsessed with only one thing: the work.
John is relentless in the pursuit of creative that speaks a simple truth in an arresting way. This focus has won him hundreds of awards in all the major national & international shows, from Cannes Gold and Silver Lions to One Show Gold and Silver Pencils to Effies to CA magazine.
John lives in Peekskill and owns up to two terrific adult children – Jay and Ben – and two perfect grandchildren... Coco and Zephyr.
PS: For the past 15 years, in his spare time, John's been the producer and host of The Morrison Motel at the Cornelia Street Café in Greenwich Village. "One of the city's best alternative comedy shows." – The NY Post
