John Friedlander

After a lifetime of helping others tell compelling stories, here are parts of my own story.

I am a writer and independent media producer. I work with authors, artists, academics, attorneys, businesses and politicians to clearly communicate their essential stories to audiences of their peers, potential customers, community groups, regulatory agencies and juries, so that decisions can be made, actions can be taken, and markets and minds expanded.

I also develop my own projects which explore some of the most pressing issues of our time, including whether our species will survive its own success, and whether zombies will overcome their obvious public image challenges.

Work should be fun, right?








I've been playing, writing and performing music since I was a small child.

Primarily a guitarist, my most recent band JD Bone played a tantalizing blend of original folk and blues tunes, until my musical partner moved to the opposite coast.

My longest-runing project was Church House Concerts, an eight-year series of concerts featuring a diverse selection of some of the world's most accomplished musicians.

I am constantly inspired by music, and often work in musical environments, whether by producing or co-producing events, capturing still or moving images in collaboration with my wife, or by using or creating musical soundtracks for my other media projects.
