Hi! My name is Jon. As you’ve probably gleened from the URL, this is my personal website. I started this blog shortly after I was diagnosed as having ADHD at the age of 40. This blog started off as a discovery process surrounding how ADHD fit in my life. I have since discovered that it is simply part of who I am. I don’t believe it to be a disorder. There are too many shades of grey in the discussion to allow it to be something that defines me.
As a designer and business owner, I have seen both the benefits and the pitfalls of dealing with being one that is easily distracted by blinky lights. I’ve written articles and given presentations about how I believe ADHD is beneficial to being a designer. I’ve created DVDs that targeted designers with ADHD, before I even knew I had ADHD and I had no idea that I was actually targeting that niche.
This blog is about my journey of discovery as a designer and entrepreneur. It represents a shift to my belief that ADHD allows me the ability to see opportunity everywhere. I will be writing about my passion that comes from the creation of something new and meaningful…and if you separate the meaningful from the new, you’ve failed.
