A Montgomery native, John has always found himself between his two passions: art and technology. With an innate curiosity to discover how things work, he would disassemble things to see how they work and sometimes put them back together. With computers in the home since day one it was inevitable he would become enamored with them, especially once he got a copy of photoshop and a pen tablet to make art. Culminating in the merger of his interests, John graduated from the Memphis College of Art with a BFA in Design Arts with a concentration in Digital Media and a Minor in Art History. Before joining the Dogwood team, John worked for 5 years at an advertising agency and 3 years doing freelance IT, design, and development. In his free time, you can find John working on cars, playing paintball, shooting with cameras, and gaming.
