He moved to Chicago after school to hone his team building skills managing a 60-person inside sales team at Worldbook Encyclopedia. After enduring another year of winter, John flew to Los Angeles on vacation and moved there two weeks later.
That is where he co-founded Design Publications, an architecture and design trade magazine. For 26 years, the team he built scaled the publication from a local magazine to a national title. John grew the business vertically, adding computer imaging and pre-press to expand the revenue stream and turn vendors into customers. He raised outside capital to launch additional publications that continued to add value to the brand. In 2010 John transitioned the company from traditional publishing to an online media company and sold his interest in 2014. When he is not selling, John practices yoga, mountaineering and long distance cycling.
