Meet the Team: John Luke Tyner

We already have a page that shows us in the office setting, with the usual bios about our path and role and interests. Thought it would be fun to highlight one team member every month, with some Q&A and out-of-office pics.  John Luke is the next “volunteer”, with a short video to preview his interview below.

Favorite Quote

What is success to me? Continue to ask yourself that question. How are you prosperous? What is your relevance? Your answer may change over time and that’s fine but do yourself this favor – whatever your answer is, don’t choose anything that would jeopardize your soul. Prioritize who you are, who you want to be, and don’t spend time with anything that antagonizes your character. Don’t depend on drinking the Kool-Aid – it’s popular, tastes sweet today, but it will give you cavities tomorrow. Life is not a popularity contest. Be brave, take the hill. But first answer the question.”  Matthew McConaughey, Greenlights
