John Anderson, Editor-In-Chief
With a love of life, learning and laughter, John revels in the world of creation and creativity.

Once that fire is lit, it’s hard to douse the drive to make a living writing, reading, communicating, and interacting. Life really is about defining your passion, surrounding yourself with greatness, and getting after it with a lot of heart. Sprinkle in countless late nights, leftover spaghetti, and rolled up sleeves, and it’s hard to fail.
