In addition, he has hosted a radio show, acted professionally (although not since age 15), designed scripts for games, written a play for a professional theatre company, taught university astronomy, and written articles on topics including mythology, psychology, technology, religion, and marketing strategy.
His many interests include literature, religion and philosophy, mythology, the Arthurian legends, travel, baseball, science fiction and fantasy, marketing communications, Celtic music and lore, new media, theatre, politics, astronomy, and cosmological physics.

John Adcox is the founder and CEO of Gramarye Media, the story incubator — a disruptive book publisher, a film studio, a game developer, and more. Gramarye is the first “mini-major” studio, complete with distribution, on the east coast, and the first funded by an SEC-compliant Security Token Offering.
Gramarye Media was incubated through Georgia Tech’s prestigious Flashpoint, which advocates rigorous process for reliable innovation. Gramarye applies that same incubation approach to content innovation, building and vetting engaged audiences before a single frame of film is shot. That process, along with proprietary technology and the Georgia business environment, allows Gramarye to reduce both the risk and costs of developing original event tentpole franchises.
