With a staff of nearly 200 artists, coders and makers, Global Thinking helps local and national brands engage in better conversations with their customers.  Evolving out of a small local printing company, Global Thinking has grown into an award-winning agency with national clientele and global production capabilities.  Jon credits Global Thinking’s success to a strong company culture focused on curiosity, empathy and optimism.

Jon is a graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology, which he actively supports by providing a dozen annual paid internships to students and through his participation on the RIT President’s Roundtable.  Jon also serves on the board of directors of LIFT, a national non-profit organization committed to helping families escape poverty.

He lives in Chevy Chase, Maryland with his wife Susannah and their five children.
