Key Accomplishments

Having served as a Senior Vice President and Creative Director at Grooveshark for close to 6 years, John is no stranger to the trials of the start-up lifestyle. Growing a product from a loose concept to an international audience of over 40 million wasn't easy, especially with little funding or experience. Over the past 6 years, John has led the redesign and re-imagination of Grooveshark, continually setting new levels of excellence and experience in the world of online music. John’s experience at Grooveshark also made him the creative force behind many first-to-market branded experiences that leveraged Grooveshark’s global appeal in conjunction with Fortune 500 brands.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Energy and experience. I believe in quality first. That product experience is as important as, if not more important than, financial projections, marketing strategy, etc... I have a deep appreciation for the end-user, something that is often lost when the focus is on building a company.
