About Us:

Since 1995, Jon has developed extensive experience and knowledge of the Internet and of Web Design since first learning the basics while working for Virginia Tech University from 1986 to 1995.

Combining this experience and his on-going quest for knowledge, he adds his background in art, graphics, design, layout, lithography and photography to his client's needs.
 Jon has worked within a variety of
venues and with craftsmen, artists and small to medium sized businesses in regard to their unique internet presence and diverse promotional requirements.

In the ever changing world of the Internet and Web Site development, Jon continues to stay abreast of the latest advances, providing practical input, guidance and support to clients for their respective websites.

Besides his full time involvement through CountryView Studios, Jon also does quite a bit of freelance and "ghost" web work for other design and graphic companies as well as being a freelance "ghost writer".

Though virtually all web work taken on by CountryView Studios is done hands-on by Jon, he also directly oversees any work performed by staff or by the close knit community of freelance professional scripters, artists and programmers with whom he and they provide services for one another as needed.

Prior to developing CountryView Studios' Floyd Va. Web & Graphics Services,  Jon worked for many years in broadcast radio producing and creating both mainstay and uniquely original programming and on-air hosting entertainment and news/information programs for commercial and public radio stations including Floyd County's very first radio station, WGFC and for one of America's primary and widest range Public Radio affiliates.
He owned and operated one of the first on-site offset print and publishing shops in Floyd, the Village Print Shop.
He is a published poet, journalist and photographer and continues to work on various creative art and literary projects in his "countryview studio" located along the forest's edge on his homestead on the Appalachian Plateau.

Jon and his wife maintained a private domestic and feral animal rescue, shelter and sanctuary on their rural property for over twenty-five years for a multitude of God's creatures paying for all animals' needs out of their own pocket.

They continue with their slightly downsized animal rescue  while they do their best at living an environmentally and ecologically conscientious lifestyle that includes growing organic blueberries, heritage apples, peaches, strawberries and culinary herbs and spices on their mountainside homestead in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

They have been members of Floyd's agricultural and creative community since the 1970's.
