John was the first person that hired me when I moved to New York City, as a fresh graduate… He allowed me to grow a lot professionally as he guided me throughout the process… Thank you John! Thank you for seeing the potential in me.

…beyond helpful Art Director.

John was an extremely talented, patient, full of laughs and beyond helpful Art Director. He was the perfect person to watch over me as I started my first job out of college and following through to the end of my tenure at Playboy.

…the mark of an outstanding manager.

What makes John unique is his desire to bring something fresh and new to any assignment. He presents options in terms of creative messaging, overall look & feel and also balance to any material he contributes to.… Equally impressive is how he credits his team… the mark of an outstanding manager.

He was a star employee…

John did not simply execute design at Playboy, he was an integral part of the conceptualization of many proposals… He was a star employee at Playboy, and would be for any other company…

…a swiss army knife…

John was the go-to resource to not only navigate the design department but the company as a whole… John was a swiss army knife when it came to all things design related.
