John in a few words




I am a seasoned communications professional with over a decade of experience serving the world's most successful creative agencies, market-leading brands, and industry-shaping executive leaders. My international clients turn to me for my ability to dive deep into the intricacies and nuances of their organizations to communicate value and drive action.

Across my professional career, I’ve had the privilege to work with market-leading companies around the world to develop communications strategies to generate multi-million and billion-dollar revenues for my clients.

Niches and content silos are boundaries that limit potential. Though they have a value for the brands I serve, my potential to deliver world-class communications assets means being able to cover any and every topic, subject, or niche imaginable. My strategies, research findings, and written texts are used to dictate C-suite thought leadership, and internal/external corporate communications at some of the most successful organizations in the world.

I am a lifelong storyteller and senior strategic communications consultant that helps the world’s most competitive global organizations communicate their intrinsic value across all traditional and new media channels. Pivoting from DTC and B2B is a second-nature and I have detailed experience serving clients on both sides of the coin.

Conducting market research, formulating content strategy, developing business intelligence insights, and executing English communications-related writing projects are my professional passions. I thrive when given the opportunity to dive deep into the demographic and psychographic trends guiding a brand’s success. My global clients turn to me for my expertise, candor, and ability to quickly and seamlessly integrate myself into distributed remote teams with the comfort of a long term partner.
