John McNeal | Owner & Creative Lead

As a trained classical and jazz pianist, John understands that sometimes you play the exact notes on the page and other times you have to improvise. John’s backgrounds in 3d visuals, animation, and design allow him to work closely with clients helping them share their story in a unique, creative, and effective way. John’s creative direction takes 2Reveal clients’ complex problems and solves them using a splash of art, a dash of science, and the right communication mix.

A native to Ohio, John was born in Toledo and has lived all across the country. He graduated from The Ohio State University and worked as a 3D animator before forming 2Reveal in 2002. John and his wife Erin first worked together upon graduating from college and eventually began dating after taking swing dance classes together. They have been married 10+ wonderful years, live in downtown Columbus, and have two kids under the age of 3, and black German Shepherd mix named Jackson. John is active in his church, loves football, enjoys watching movies in the theater, enjoys old school jazz, and wishes he could travel more than his wallet allows.

John is involved with Gracehaven, a faith-based nonprofit organization who serves minors under 18 that have been sexually exploited without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, disability, or sexual orientation. Gracehaven’s mission is to care for sexually exploited children by providing comprehensive client centered services.
