Our Story

JDK consulting was founded 30 years ago by John Kippen, a visionary IT expert who saw a gap in the market for small commercial production companies. He realized that these companies needed IT solutions that were not being offered by anyone else. Solutions that were customized to their needs and reliable.

So he began going from company to company, learning from them what issues they faced and what goals they had. He then tailored custom software and designed the hardware to support it, all to meet their needs.  Word spread quickly through the industry that John was offering a thoughtful, hands-on approach to his customers and he became known as the go-to guy for IT in the production business. He earned a growing reputation and client base across the industry.


However, John’s journey was not without challenges. In 2013, he was diagnosed with a rare and life-threatening brain tumor called acoustic neuroma. He underwent a risky surgery to remove the tumor, but it left him with permanent consequences. He lost his hearing in his left ear and suffered from facial paralysis on the same side. He had to relearn how to speak, smile and blink. This was a devastating blow for John, who had always been a confident and charismatic leader but he found a new source of inspiration in an unlikely place: magic.

John had always been fascinated by magic since he was a kid. He loved the thrill of creating illusions and surprising people with his tricks. He decided to pursue his passion for magic as a way of coping with his condition and restoring his self-esteem. He practiced relentlessly, mastering the art of sleight of hand and mind reading. He also used magic as a tool to connect with others and share his story.

Ten years after his diagnosis, John has achieved what many would consider impossible. He is not only the CEO of a successful IT company that serves clients worldwide, but also motivational speaker that uses magic to communicate the message that being different is a super power.

Today, JDK consulting is still run by John and his team of IT professionals who share his passion and vision for IT. Now we support individuals and businesses all over the world with the same quality of service.  We are still committed to providing personalized IT experience for our clients and we are still making IT work like magic.
