Meet John -- This Week's Featured Employee

October 22, 2010


This week's Featured Employee is John, who recently joined Guidance as one of our Directors of Open Source Solutions. John is our resident DJ, who comes to us all the way from the lone star state of Texas. We asked John to answer a few questions for us, check out what he had to say:

What’s your title?
Director of Open Source Solutions

How long have you been at Guidance?
About 7 months.

Tell us about your hometown.
I grew up outside of Dallas in town called The Colony. You read it right, “The Colony”.

What city do you currently live in?
Venice, California

How did you decide on this career?
I love to program. I enjoy creating interesting and challenging applications and communities. The start up I was at was running out of money so I decided to go back to services. I started my career at a big services company and was curious what a boutique shop in L.A. was like.

What was the oddest job you ever held?
One summer in High School, I was the assistant to the artist at a label plant. I learned about flexographic printing and that was the first time I used a Mac. I didn’t care for them back then. One day, I got in trouble for wasting plate material on a Morrissey print.

What do you like most about working at Guidance?
The flexible work environment and fun teammates.

What are you currently working on?
