With the aid of K’NEX, John discovered at a young age his passion for bringing ideas to life. He would spend hours on the floor designing cars, homes, tools, and even a fully functional elevator. His constant curiosity for how things worked, combined with a non-functional computer found in his parent’s basement, fueled his love for technology and desire to pursue a Computer Engineering degree at Grand Valley State University. While there, he found programming to be the ultimate tool for designing, creating solutions, and making ideas come to life.
It wasn’t until he joined MichiganLabs, however, that John was able to pursue his true passion: mobile app development. MichiganLabs has been the perfect fit for his curiosity, allowing him to hone his skill set and experience the excitement as customers share their ideas for a new app.
Even when not at work, John finds himself reading tech news and creating apps. Other interests include basketball, soccer and football, and spending time with friends. On the home front, he enjoys doing projects around the house and spending quiet nights with his wife, Amanda, and their curious cat. John and Amanda also lead a small group at church.
