Like many working in information technology, John followed the traditional path for the profession. Earning a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in painting and sculpture, he went off to tour around in a band for a few years and subsequently founded a letterpress and design studio that focused on custom packaging. Such a resumé leads to one place: IT. And so it was that John found himself assisting faculty and students to explore and understand the many possibilities of digital technology in creative disciplines. Alongside his fellow technical staff, he keeps things running and develops new resources for the department.
