Hi, I'm John

I help people build brands and businesses that change lives, starting with their own.


I’m a brand strategist, innovation facilitator, and speaker from Philadelphia. I help people unlock their potential by gaining clarity, harnessing creativity, and taking action. I work with entrepreneurs, business leaders, and organizations to build human-centered businesses for the digital era.

When not working with clients, I write and speak about how we can use mindful communication and the power of stories create positive change. I’m an experienced facilitator, and I give frequent workshops on Design Thinking, Innovation, Branding, and Consensus building.

I’m also the founder & CEO of Being Design Inc.

“Helping people take action on their most ambitious goals.”

Interested in working together?

Do you have a complex business problem? A design project? Do you need a speaker for your next event? Just have a question? – Let me know!

"John is one of the easiest people I know to work with. Aside from his calm and understanding presence, he is whip-smart and understands both the front and backend of digital projects. He is a whiz-kid to me."
