“The socially awkward nerd in the corner”, I am John Taylor, better known as Johnny T. I hail from Lebanon, VA, nestled in the mountains of southwest Virginia. I am a husband, father of two, cancer survivor, mental health awareness advocate, tech enthusiast, and IT guy.
I was diagnosed with testicular cancer in September of 2012, and received my remission status the following February. Since then I have served as an advocate and patient mentor for other testicular cancer patients. I have also been a soldier of mental illness for a good portion of my life. I lead several online groups dedicated to fathers who battle with mental illness, and I serve as an outspoken advocate of men's mental health awareness.
I have been a tech enthusiast my entire life. From mobile technology, to technology futures, I am fascinated by the world of ones and zeros. I graduated with my Associate's Degree in Information Systems in 2017 and plan to return to school to gain more knowledge and certifications in security, networking, and data management.
