Howdy, I'm John!

I enjoy documenting the world around me through photography and writing. I love sharing my favorite experiences from Austin and around the world on Hop Safari Experiences.

Professionally, I develop iOS applications. For fun, I make photographs, travel, and windsurf. John occasionally brews beer at home, and goes to a lot of food, beer, and cocktail events, which he documents with photos and video. Occasionally John publishes a book.

Depending on the day, you'll find John:

  • At the Beach, windsurfing
  • Walking the dogs in the greenbelt
  • Taking photos of his food at a restaurant or event
  • Developing iPhone, iPad, or web apps
  • Attending technology conferences
  • The Alamo Drafthouse, watching a movie and drinking a craft beer
  • A local craft brewery helping out or taking photos
  • Crossfit Central, working out
  • On a photo walk 

The Business

Hop Safari is a part of Moving Average Inc., a small independent publisher founded by John. Moving Average sells books and services for business owners and software developers.
