John began his career in advertising as a copywriter trainee, four decades ago, on an April Fool’s Day.
This may have something to do with his ability to not take himself or the sturm und drang of the
business too seriously.
Over the years he has helped communicate the benefits of cars (Toyota, BMW), soft drinks (7-Up),
the arts (visual, performing), tourism (Pennsylvania), banks (CIBC, Dollar), science education (National
Science Foundation) and eggs (scrambled, hard-boiled, sunny side up).
He is a bonsai enthusiast, a TEDster, a Chautauquan, and a student of creativity in all its facets and
forms. If he someday hangs it up, he’s pretty sure it will be on an April Fool’s Day.
