"Always desire to learn something useful." - Sophocles
John likes to introduce himself by saying he is a robot programmed with a singular mission: To teach and inspire through technology. John has over 10 years experience developing both software and hardware and melding them in deliciously interesting ways to create new works. John recently graduated as a Bachelor of Computer Science and Arts and an Innovation Scholar from Carnegie Mellon University. John keeps tabs on all the latest technology he can find and continuously applies them in his artistic practice. As a result, John knows just about how to build anything, from artificially intelligent conversational agents to autonomous gardening robots. With this knowledge, John founded Choitek, Pittsburgh's friendly neighborhood humanoid robotics company. John is truly an artist, engineer, and entrepreneur all in one.
