My wife and I have this game we play. Whenever we meet someone new, I always get some sort of impression about them. Like, maybe it’s a married couple and I’ll get the sense they’re really unhappy and will get divorced soon. Or maybe they’re pregnant, but haven’t told anyone.

Now, just three years later… he’s Senior Consultant and one of Fortune’s 500 fastest growing companies, his clients are a who’s who of the top companies in the world and he earns a cool 6-figures doing it.

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.
John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it.
