John was born in Meridian Mississippi at a very early age.
An art director by trade, John has lent his talents to clients in almost every category including AT&T, REI, Florida Department of Citrus, BCBS Florida, Oakland Athletics, Amazon, Boston Market, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Delta Air Lines and Wachovia Bank. His work has been recognized by virtually all of the major industry shows – The One Show, Communication Arts etc. – but he is most proud of his Most Changed honors at his tenth high school reunion, and an Effie for his work on the American Cancer Society.
Before joining Sparks Grove, John was a featured attraction at many BBDOs (South, LA, SF, ATL) as well as JWT, Ogilvy & Mather and FCB/San Francisco.
John enjoys tennis, spending time with his family, and whenever possible doing both at the same time.
