About John

John JohnsonHello, My name is John Johnson, and I do stuff. I’m a follower for Jesus, a pastor, a husband, a father, an artist, a designer, a Punk, a movie and music enthusiast and more.

I live in Columbia Missouri with my beautiful wife Haley who does photography (shameless plug www.haleyjohnsonphotography.com) and my three kids Savannah Rose (6), Oliver Leon (3), and the newest Ivy Mae.

I help pastor CenterPoint Church (another shameless plug www.cp-church.com) I teach youth 6-12 grade and help oversee the website, social media and tech.

I currently work at a college in the Technology Services Department, but I’m not as passionate about tech as people might think. I started off in that department as a student worker, due to my experience of A/V and Theater tech, so I ended up learning how to help repair computers…..but I don’t do that anymore. I’m an analyst now.

I went to school at this college for Graphic Design and Fine Arts and have always had a desire to freelance and do my own design and creative services. I would like to be able to work for myself so I can also focus more on my family, pastoring and being a creative person. So this is my website and blog and I do stuff.
