John Brownlee

strategist. editor. writer.


I passionately believe

That every brand, person, and company

Has a hidden story worth telling.

I write stories that matter.

Over my career, I have written thousands of stories about technology, health, design, and more.

As a journalist, I have been on-staff at Wired and Fast Company, and seen my work published by Playboy, Popular Mechanics, CNN, and dozens of other magazines.

As a consultant, I have helped develop editorial content for Adobe, Samsung, Amazon Pharmacy (previously PillPack), AMC, Medium, Afore Venture Capital, Huge, and others.

I have also worked as an agency copywriter, providing multi-channel content and strategies for some of the most demanding clients in the business.

I have been a ghost writer for New York Times bestsellers, and done executive writing and thought leadership work for VCs, CEOs, and the C-Suite.

I have interviewed leaders like Apple’s Jony Ive, Nike’s Mark Parker, legendary industrial designer Mark Newson, and many more.

Here are just a few of my favorite stories.
