John “Wudman” Wood is a Sacramento-based web developer who once lived in and still has an affinity for Stockton. His favorite restaurant is Arroyos Cafe, where he has enjoyed the food since his days as an Assistant Manager to Pacific Stereo. Mr. Wood brings over thirty years of B2C and B2B sales experience and management to Media Fusion Studios. His desktop publishing experience began in the mid eighties when personal computer technology became an affordable reality for consumers and small businesses. In 1999, John added web design to his portfolio services. In 2008, John began focusing on WordPress as a web development platform due to a clear push by the cellular phone industry to create smarter, Internet-enabled phones. Although web design is fundamental to Mr. Wood’s processes, he is focused on flat web design that wraps around high quality content. Design is fine, but content feeds the funnel! www.johnlwood.com
