Hello, I’m Doug Vos. I’m an Internet media strategist and publisher, currently living in the Motor City.
DougVos.com is the official website of Douglas J. Vos
I’ve been happily married to Jane (my high school sweetheart) for over 40 years. We have 5 children and over a dozen grand-children.
Back in the day (1978-1984) I studied anthropology, linguistics, Bible and theology at Kuyper College. Later on I picked up a few computer language courses.
Jane and I have been members of Oakland Hills Community Church for many years, and I’ve been privileged to serve as an ordained Deacon for over 30 years. I’ve have been blessed to lead a Financial Peace University class a couple times. It’s been amazing to watch the transformation in people’s lives when they are no longer slaves to debt.
I’m an innovator and entrepreneur. In 1996, Jane and I founded IX Publishing. In 2009 we launched Five More Talents — a web design firm that help churches, ministries and non-profits. I’m also the publisher for The Aquila Report.

Web Standards Advocacy
Here’s a photo of me (below) wearing the iconic Blue Beanie in support of Web Standards. The photo was taken in 2007, and the photo was re-used to kick-start the 2008 Blue Beanie Day campaign (on Flickr) in 2008.
