My friends call me “Johnny.”
Born in Detroit, raised in Grand Rapids and schooled in East Lansing, I’m a Michigander, through and through.
I received my B.A. in journalism with a specialization in graphic design from Michigan State University in May 2011. Since then, I’ve spent my career working in advertising, newspapers, magazines and digital publications—all with a focus on visual storytelling. My free time outside of work is typically spent attempting to establish myself as a rec-league All-Star, quasi-religiously following Michigan State athletics and trying to visit and experience as much of this great, big, wild world that I can.
On warm, Pure Michigan summer nights you can find me on my front porch, taking in the soothing sounds of Dan Dickerson and Jim Price calling Detroit Tigers games over my transistor radio and yelling at the neighborhood kids to get off my lawn.
