John holds an MBA from Vanderbilt’s Owen School (concentration in Marketing and Service Quality) and a Political Science degree with minors in Art & English from Lipscomb University. With more than twenty years of marketing experience, his entrepreneurial spirit drives innovation for his company and, more importantly, his clients.

Above all, John understands the value of building a brand. Advent exists to help organizations understand and fully utilize their identity. With John’s leadership, Advent engages clients, listens to their stories and executes strategic initiatives through visual marketing.
When John is away from work, he loves spending time with his wife, Kathryn, raising their four sons. That involves being deeply rooted in their church family, attending countless basketball and track events, shutting off his phone during the evening hours and assuming the role of an all-star father. In his spare time he serves as a shepherd at Otter Creek Church and is on the board of Brentwood Academy.
