It all started with John Housholder: part entrepreneur, part code nerd. A Memphis guy who has traveled the world, John founded Ah So Designs after living in Austria and then helping grow the account set of two of the fastest INC 500 Companies at Dell. He was an associate web professor at The Art Institute of Tennessee during the first three years of growing Ah So.
A strategic thinker who’ll give it to you straight – John has three great loves: Garth Brooks, the web and his dog, Dunn. He was married in July of 2014, to a beautiful Rebel from the University of Mississippi. Allison is now his great love, but don’t worry Dunn, you can still sleep inside. He has a master’s in Instructional Technology from University of Tennessee, Knoxville, helps run the Nashville WordPress Meetup and Nashville WordCamp, sits on the SEYA board of directors, volunteers as a mentor at the Entrepreneur Center and is on the Young Life Nashville committee.
Since starting Ah So in 2008, John has also founded WP Faciliator, a WordPress Mastermind aggregator and Kurate.it, a better way to send email in WordPress, and Exodus, a WordPress theme builder. You can regularly find John attending WordPress leadership conferences like Pressnomics, CaboPress, and WordCamp US.
