John was born in Gilroy, CA (that makes two of us from the Garlic Capital of the World :) ), and lived there for the first two years of his life. At age 2, John and his family moved to Utah where they lived for a few years before returning to California and landing on the Central Coast.
After high school, John headed down to UC Santa Barbara where his interests in both hardware and software led him to study Electrical Engineering. Towards the end of his college career, he started to realize that his interests in programming were beginning to outweigh his interests in hardware. With the hopes of further pursuing software development after graduation, he buckled up and quickly began studying all that he could about programming in his free time.
Just two years ago, John made the jump into web development. Attending Hack Reactor in San Francisco and picking up some freelance work on the side, he made sure that his knowledge and skills were growing as fast as his love for programming. John also joined CodeSLO, the local meetup for coders, where he would eventually be introduced to SoCreate and meet our founder and CEO, Justin Couto.
After his first few weeks here, John said he is most excited about being able to work on such a sharp team. After doing freelance work for quite a while, he is looking forward to being in a collaborative environment where everyone is talking about what they're working on and exchanging ideas.
We can't wait to see what the future has in store for John at SoCreate! Welcome!
