On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (01/06/14) my guest will be John Levisay, CEO of Craftsy.com. John co-founded Craftsy in 2010 because he believed that there was a better way for people to learn and interact around their passions & hobbies. Prior to Craftsy, John held executive roles at eBay.com and servicemagic.com. He joined eBay in1999, as head of Strategy & BD. He helped launch eBay Motors, growing it into a $14 billion a year global business. John later ran the Business, Photo, and Music categories on eBay and served as CEO of Kruse International, a 100-employee subsidiary of eBay Motors. Prior to eBay, John spent 6 years at General Electric, graduating from GE's Financial Management program and Corporate Audit Staff. John received his MBA from The University of Michigan and his BA from Colgate University. He grew up in Spring Valley, IL and comes from a family of crafters. John lives in Denver, CO with his amazing wife and two children. His hobbies include history, music, photography, movies, cooking, and cake decorating. John is not only an interesting man, he's also a really good guy. He has helped to bring so much to the fiber arts community. And I'm pleased to finally have him on the show. I hope you'll join us for what should be a great interview with a remarkable and visionary man.
