John received a degree in print journalism from New York University and has worked in the daily news business for 10 years. After learning the ropes at his local daily newspaper, the Santa Barbara News-Press, John pivoted to the digital medium when he co-founded Presidio Sports in 2008. That publication posted over 22,000 articles, 10,000 images, and 500 videos in seven years of business. Presidio Sports lived in the digital space but also contributed to a handful of well-regarded print publications in the region, including the Santa Barbara Independent, the Santa Barbara Sentinel, the Carpinteria Coastal View, and the Ventura Star.

John’s philosophy towards publishing is that all good content has to do one of four things: Inspire, Inform, Influence, or Entertain. These pillars are the backbone of all good content, and it’s this framework that guides JCM’s work.

In addition to the portfolio of websites, you will see John’s photography work, media commentary, social media activity, and more.
