John is the Technical Director and leads product development

Background

Born and raised in the Midwest, John spent many summer nights up late playing video games with his brother. These late night video game battles ignited John's strong interest in all things technology, an interest which has grown over the years.

In grade school, John picked up web development as a hobby when a teacher introduced him to Macromedia Dreamweaver and he created his first website. While studying Computer Science at Indiana University (Go Hoosiers!), John worked for the University and for NASA as a system administrator, maintaining their supercomputing systems. After graduation, John decided to leave system administration behind and pursue his early passion for web development. This lead to a rewarding freelance career, and eventually to John accepting a position at Authentic.

Today, John lives in Charlotte with his wife and three children. In his free time he enjoys cooking, cheering on the Cubs and playing video games with his kids.

Fun fact: his oldest daughter was born the day the Cubs broke the Curse of the Billy Goat and won their first World Series in 108 years.
