John was born and raised in Columbus Ohio, in the area now known as the King-Lincoln district attended Columbus City Schools with a concentration in fine art. With that as a base, and art in his blood, John set out on a path that would have him study with a world renowned glass sculptor, and help break down some of the limits in his creativity. Silk-screen, photography, drawing, and ceramics are all a part of John’s repertoire. The computer age allowed John to branch out even more and move his medium to graphic design. John has studied multimedia production at Columbus State, and was recently accepted to Savannah College of Art & Design. John founded “One Man Show” in 2001 which carries the design firm Gold E Productions which now boasts a national clientele, Seventeen North, an exciting apparel division re-launching this fall 201, and now Gold E Productions Publishing, through which ConversationPiece was released.
