John T, an English graduate with a 23-year career in enterprise software, has authored web content and other marketing collateral for 10 software companies over the course of eight years, in a combination of permanent and freelance engagements.

John started out as a technical writer, and at one pivotal point, his deep product knowledge, combined with his fluent Spanish, earned John a promotion to international sales, where he spent seven amazing years traveling the world, training partners, and selling software he had just documented, with President's Club honors.

Overflowing with ideas inspired by conversations with customers and partners, John then parlayed his writing and sales experience to product marketing, and he has since copywritten hundreds of internal- and external-facing documents.

John T has published articles in Worcester Business Journal, Oracle Update, and Nor'Easter, and is writing a book in the background.
