John has been working as a freelance copywriter since 2000, writing for and advising nonprofits, startups, regional businesses, schools and universities, and global brands. Originally from New Orleans, he currently lives and works in (and teaches from) Portland, Oregon. Before discovering that copywriting was a thing he could do for a living, John earned a B.A. in communication and German and an M.A. in organizational communication, both from Purdue. If he's not teaching or writing, he's probably still writing something — he runs a business teaching people how to build their own backyard chicken coops, serves on the board of his neighborhood association, and writes songs for fun.
