As the Director of Digital Engagement, John spends his day online sharing the wide world of cable. If you’ve ever come across one of cable’s infographics, if you read NCTA’s blog “platform”, or if you follow any of NCTA’s social media accounts, then you’ve seen John at work. He’s the guy making sure cable’s message is digital, accessible, and shareable. When he’s not at work, John can be found riding his bike or delicately arranging the stones, sticks, and plants in his aquarium. He finds both very relaxing.
