Barker's Web Design Service (BWDS) was started in January, 2004 by John Barker, Jr., a web design/desktop publishing business he created by himself in the Pueblo, CO area.

Barker, who holds two college degrees (B.A. in Business Administration - Western State College of Colorado, Gunnison, CO, and M.S. in Sports Management, Western Illinois University, Macomb, IL) learned web design, HTML and CSS on his own from working 11 years in college athletic media relations (sports information). He specializes in Joomla! a content management system (CMS), but also does WordPress.

Born in Denver, CO, Barker has lived for most of his life in Pueblo, CO. John has worked in several athletic departments throughout the country (University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA, The College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA, Fort Hays State University, Hays, KS, University of Southern Colorado - now CSU-Pueblo, and Wichita State University, Wichita, KS.

Barker, who is single, has numerous interest and hobbies (playing board games, reading and dancing). He also enjoys spending time with his parents, siblings and their families. In August 2014, Barker underwent a cochlear implant on his right ear and has regained some of the hearing he has lost since birth. 

A huge country western fan, John has had the opportunity to see some of the top names in country music, including Teri Clark (four times), Alabama and  Brooks and Dunn (twice), Garth Brooks, Toby Keith, Montgomery and Gentry, Gretchen Wilson, Blake Owens, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, George Strait, Lonestar and the Charlie Daniels Band.
