SPECIALTIES: Digital marketing, search engine optimization, online reputation management, end-to-end web property development, digital privacy, data analytics

Hey there, I’m John Bourscheid. I handle marketing, web development, social media, email marketing, public relations, search engine optimization and outreach for Removaly, a data removal resource Kyle and I ideated in early 2020 after dealing with our own personal struggles with online harassment.

I have been an entrepreneur in the digital space since my teenage years. I also have always been on the lookouts to branch into new projects and markets. My educational background is accounting and business administration, but I’ve never done much of anything outside of my taxes in the accounting realm.

My career started in the gaming sector, working various positions at a large casino in North Carolina, focused on front-of-house customer service and player relations. From there, my wife and I moved to South Carolina, where I worked through the ranks at a billion-dollar financial sector corporation, starting as a financial analyst and finishing as a project coordinator.

We then moved to Jacksonville, Florida (where we reside today with our two small dogs), where I took a role with a multibillion-dollar logistics corporation as a data analyst. All through these career shifts, I always held onto my passion of developing, strategizing, and managing web properties. Finally, a role opened up as a digital marketing specialist in the same corporation, my most recent role.

Through multiple moves (one for my wife to attend medical school, and another for her to partake in surgical residency), I was amazed at how much of my personal information was tracked and listed for the world to see. We aim to quell that here at Removaly.

When I’m not behind the computer screen working on Removaly or a number of other projects, I love exploring and taking photos in my city of Jacksonville. I catalog many of these area adventures on @jacksonvillephoto.

Additional hobbies and interests include woodworking, urban exploration, traveling, hiking, credit card churning, flying my drone around, working on home improvement and home automation projects, and much, much more.
