From a young age, John has been fascinated with the ad world. From reading Ad Age magazines in high school to spending the last 23 years working in all disciplines of the industry, John is currently the Chief Strategy Officer at Drake Cooper.

From the episode: "We have this little pool of money, who do we focus it on?" "...we have to really define the problem in order to help."
