Welcome! I’m John Harrison, an independent developer, photographer and writer based in Queens. However, I frequently can be found elsewhere! After thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2016, I’m taking action to see more of the country and there’s no better time than right now to travel, especially when it’s the easiest its ever been to stay connected. For Summer 2017, I cycled across the USA, culminating with a viewing of the eclipse in Oregon before taking a train back to NYC, where I’m again situated for the time being.
As a web developer, I’ve worked with creative agencies and startups around New York since 2012 building cutting edge web experiences and advertisements. I’ve specialized in building WordPress websites and themes from scratch, but am also comfortable working with a variety of languages or frameworks; we’re always learning and adapting to new innovations! I’m happy to take root wherever I am for the right gig, if I’d be an asset for your high tech projects.
The genesis of my photography and writing is in NYC’s music scene. I picked up a camera to document all the concerts I went to as part of Neat Beet, a music site I ran from 2014-2016. I interviewed performers, covered the news in the scene, and also discovered my own form of abstract art. In this journey, I found the comfort to do portraiture and document all sorts of events.
