John Garvey

Sr. Storytelling Specialist

John’s earliest memory is falling out of his crib in a botched escape attempt. It wouldn’t be the last time curiosity got the better of him. John is always excited about some book he’s reading. He’s deeply curious about what inspires other people and what makes them tick. That curiosity is the lens he generally views business and marketing through.

John graduated from Virginia Military Institute in 2006 with a degree in International Studies. His first taste of marketing came a few months after moving to Fort Collins in 2013 when he founded what is now North FoCo Pub Runners. He received his MBA from Colorado State in 2015 and ran his own marketing consultancy for several years. Eventually he got sick of running a business, but he loves the creativity and analytical challenges of marketing. He immediately knew he had his work cut out for him when he interviewed for the Storytelling Specialist position at Old Town Media.

Outside of work, John loves running, live music, drawing, and spending time with his three children.
