Our goal is to prepare you for sustainable success, optimizing your current vision and unlocking new thinking that keeps you ahead of the curve and the competition. We do this through an obsessive adherence to our core values: Speed & Intent, Strategic Discipline, Adaptability & Radical Stewardship.

I have had the pleasure of working with John at 3 different companies...Disney, AwesomenessTV, and DreamWorks Animation. I have been consistently impressed with his strategic thinking and forward looking orientation. He also possesses an excellent knowledge of the media marketplace and navigating the sea change in our industry. He is smart, entrepreneurial, and passionate. I would work with him again on any project or role.
