about John

I’m a business technology consultant living in the Virginia-Highland neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia. I provide a multitude of services: large project management, web hosting and development, analytics support, and more.

I’m a non-recovering Googlephile. If it’s a Google product – iGoogle, Apps, Android, Analytics – I tried it out as soon as I could get my hands on it, and recommended it to clients. And I think Google Maps for Android is the coolest thing since the Up Goer- err, the Saturn V rocket.)

I am a big fan of smartphones and their ability to improve quality of life. Mobile phones freed us from the office and the search for a pay phone. Smartphones educate us, entertain us, and make us more productive whether we’re on the road, at the desk, or on the beach. And we’ve only begun to see what they’re capable of. Scott Adams is right – we are now cyborgs.

In 2004 and 2005 I served as the Chairman of the City of Atlanta’s Telecommunications Policy Advisory Committee.

When not working, I’m either studying, working on the house, or serving as concierge, maitre d’hotel, and doorman for the most spoiled cat in Atlanta. From time to time you can find me out indulging in my interest in photography or transportation history, hiking in the Grand Canyon or the Dales, cycling the Virginia Creeper Trail, or trying to bag the perfect Milky Way time-lapse.

I’m married to the most wonderful and beautiful woman in the world, and we spend as much time as we can on what one friend dubbed “. . . the best porch in Virginia-Highland.”
