John leads Princeton University's testing and remediation efforts, to help ensure the University's designers, developers and writers create content that is easy to read and easy to adapt to the full range of assistive technologies.

Embedded in the Office of Information Technology's Web Development Services team, he works to mentor his colleagues; testing prototypes, teaching ARIA and JavaScript techniques and demonstrating new ways to automatically and manually detect potential issues.

His background in digital publishing has also helped him bridge the proverbial gap between system architects and content editors, seeking places where changes to editorial workflows can reduce the need for training and proofreading by making better choices intuitive, self-reinforcing and self correcting. These efforts are given back to the community where possible; his team has already open-sourced the Editoria11y Accessibility Checker and the Decorative Image Widget.

Having worked at Princeton for more than 15 years, John is a Certified Professional in Web Accessibility and a Certified Associate in Project Management. As an alumnus of the University's Department of Classics, he can confirm that Lorem Ipsum is not really Latin.
