John Born started Humble Matter in 2014 after escaping from the world of advertising—thanks to his amazing wife. Not a New York native, but definitely a transplant who’s taken hold, John has lived in Brooklyn since moving to New York in 1993. An avid runner and beach lover, John can be found running throughout Brooklyn or relaxing on the beaches of Truro, MA with his family (aforementioned amazing wife, 2 brilliant but loud children, uber stylish step-daughter and charming son-in-law)...when he’s not in the studio. John has a BFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He is extremely thankful for the gift that is Humble Matter.
