In 2013 John created Law Street Media, a web-based media company covering the world of law.
Law Street Media builds on the groundbreaking work of First Street, a revolutionary product that John conceived in 2009 and brought to market two years later as CEO of CQ Press. First Street allowed users to track connections between the people, money, and issues in Washington politics. After First Street was sold to a third party, John created an archive of the extensive media coverage about First Street. Track the money at opensecrets.org, from the Center for Responsive Politics. John serves on the center’s board.
