As an automotive enthusiast, John has been embedded in car culture and has brought his unique and distinct style to every custom vehicle he has had a chance to work on either for himself or clients. His personal car builds have received numerous awards – a Ford design award in 2021 and 2011, a President’s Choice Award by Hyundai Motor America in 2013, and Scion Tuner Challenge achievements in 2008 and 2010 – and in 2013, John made SEMA News’ “35 Under 35” list.
As a PR & marketing specialist, John has worked throughout his career working with many of the top automotive brands in the industry and has built an impressive roster of clients that include projects with Stance socks, Hyundai, eBay, Old Spice, KW Suspension, Gran Turismo, Grand Prix of Long Beach, and Reign Energy Drink. Today, his company JP+CO, is the PR agency of record for Toyo Tires and continues to work with brands including Pelican, Ford/Lincoln, and more.
On the event side, John has produced multiple events from product launches to press reveals. This includes the Toyo Tires Trailpass, which is an annual event that is focused on education and relationships within the outdoors, off-road, and overlanding community. John is on the advisory board for the Pow! Wow! Long Beach, an art festival that brings both internationally renowned and local artists together to beautify the city of Long Beach.
