John is a communications specialist/content strategist—a fancy way of saying he helps several schools on the IUPUI campus tell their stories. John spent his career in sports before arriving at IUPUI, working as a sportswriter for the St. Petersburg Times (now the Tampa Bay Times) and ESPN.com and in professional sports communications at the PGA Tour and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Working at IUPUI is a bit like coming home: John’s writing career began at IU Bloomington, where he was sports editor at the Indiana Daily Student while earning his Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. His first job out of school was writing The Little 500: The Story of the World’s Greatest College Weekend, published by Indiana University Press. In his spare time, John likes to play golf and hunt for books with his wife and two daughters, who share his love of storytelling.
