About John

Majority of my career was spent in Information Technology with the last 18 or so as a CIO and CEO. My business experience spans several different and diverse industries. I am currently semi-retired but active in the startup world as an angel investor and advisor. Well connected in the greater Chicagoland area, especially the information technology space. I would be honored to help any veteran regardless of location and career interests.
