After years as a business owner, executive, consultant and copywriter, John is focusing his efforts on strategic projects for interesting Catholic ministries and selected small businesses where he can offer insight, value and experience.

John jokingly refers to his “checkered past” as a serial entrepreneur where he’s been successful in various businesses in Indiana for over 30 years. From owning and operating several thriving companies to serving in an executive role with successful businesses, John has always been a mastermind at putting together innovative strategies for company growth. His career started at a Big 4 CPA firm, so he has financial acumen that always colors how he approaches results driven projects.

A lifelong Catholic and graduate of Notre Dame, John is comfortable talking about his own Catholic spiritual journey. The bumps and bruises of life have taken John to a comfortable place where he can focus on working with a few Catholic organizations and small businesses where he feels like he can make a difference. John has even started writing spiritual books and articles as he continues to grow in his own faith and writing.

People who know John well will tell you he’s a “thinker”. He’ll surprise you with how he might apply insight from a small business strategy to a way you might grow your small Catholic apostolate. And, he might do the same about your business, pointing out that what might seem OK in this business culture might not be so “right” in the greater realm of God’s kingdom. So, be prepared if you choose to work with John. His unique life and faith experiences combined with an insight and willingness to address hard issues might be just what you need, right now.
