Jon was always a doodler. Once he saw that he could make a living doodling, he was off and running.
It was while working in the print design world in Boston that he was first exposed to the wonderful world of interactive and the glory of motion design and animation.
While steeping himself in whatever 2D and 3D programs were available he found that to make animation do what you wanted required coding. That’s when he discovered his inner geek. Before Co-founding JMX2, he doodled for several top agencies including Bronner Slosberg Humphrey (now Digitas), Bozell, Ogilvy, BBDO and for his own Web shop in NY. He’s even won a few awards along the way.
John was a technology evangelist before most people had even heard the word Internet.
He programmed his first video game in 1982 on an Texas Instrument TI-994A, sent his first email in 1988 using a mainframe computer and wrote, designed and coded his first web site in 1994.
He’s been an art director, creative director, and digital strategist at many of New York’s top advertising agencies including Ammirati & Puris, Modem Media, DDB, Lowe, and Ogilvy.
He believes the Internet will stick. In addition to his work at JMX2, Inc., he writes at SuperGeekery.com. He's also the creator of Pic Puller for Instagram, a commercial addon for ExpressionEngine. You can also follow him on Twitter.
