As chief operations officer and head of HR at Methodologie, John wears a lot of hats—some at a jaunty angle, all of them well. His diverse responsibilities include contracts, facilities, management systems and processes, resource planning, recruiting, estimating and making sure the soda fridge is stocked—everything required to keep us working smoothly and effectively.
John has been with Methodologie for well over a decade. However, marketing and creative services is John’s second career—his first being a stage actor based in New York and San Diego, in productions ranging from Shakespeare to "The Sound of Music." His acting background has proved useful at Methodologie by making him an empathetic listener and good sounding board, and giving him good instincts in event planning, team building and networking.
A California native, John holds a communications degree from UCSD and an MFA in theater from Temple University, and has a fascinating and extensive collection of opera records, catalogued on his website, Vinyl Divas. He is a member of APDF and AIGA, participates in the MS Bike Ride and serves on the marketing committee for (and sings with) the a cappella choir Seattle Pro Musica.
