After obtaining a BS in Photography from CMSU, John began his design career working for CPI as a Digital Imager and Product Developer. John’s days consisted of creating new products for Sears Portrait Studios and PictureMe (Wal-Mart Portrait Studios), and managing the large format section of the Digital Imaging Department.
John’s interests eventually started to lean towards web development and database design, so he went back to school and obtained his Oracle DBA Certification. Around this time he also changed careers and started working for Network Solutions as a Web Developer. At Network Solutions John created many custom websites for various businesses across the world. Here he also learned a great deal of SEO techniques and the foundations of his PHP knowledge.
John eventually changed careers again, this time he went to Graybar Electric as an Internet Marketing Manager. At Graybar John found himself running and maintaining the public side of Graybar.com, which included all SEO, site updates, developing custom microsites, and spearheaded the drive to do a complete site redesign.
When John joined Graybar, JohnNemec.com was more of a portfolio for John’s Web Design and Photography work but John wanted to obtain more writing experience so site transformed into a Blog. The big question was, what to blog about, and the quick answer is, blog about what you know. So John converted JohnNemec.com into a Web Design and Development blog. After time other sections entered the site after the My Boring Life section gain popularity. Now rather than just a Web Development blog, it’s become a blog about anything and everything that interests John Nemec.
