In the sixth grade, John won the middle school science fair. He balanced out that great feat of nerdiness by ditching the award ceremony, like some sort of 11 year old James Dean. Over the last 8 years, John has continued that balancing act by building applications with über-geeky backends and cool, killer UIs on the Salesforce platform for Fortune 500 companies, non-profits, and higher ed institutions. John has spent the last 5+ years working at Salesforce, and is a fierce advocate for developers and admins doing pro bono work for non-profits. In his free time, you'll probably find John building a micro service on a Raspberry Pi, eating a pie, or at the gym trying to work off that pie.
