Biography

As Assistant Director for Electronic Communications, I currently handle all facets of Emory & Henry College's presence for publicly available digital materials.

I’ve been working with the web for over 10 years with in-depth experience developing, designing and delivering digital marketing material via the internet at a professional level. I love creating web sites and applications that are polished, standards based, user friendly & accessible. While I prefer to work in HTMLCSS and javascript, my solid foundation in PHPMySQL and Apache gives me flexibility in addressing and solving electronic development, design, & delivery obstacles.

My firm grasp on current web technologies pairs well with my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Through the use of products such as Adobe's Creative Design Suite, I'm able to marry the design and coding processes to produce more efficient and productive designs for marketing and communication purposes. Paired with a wealth of print, typography and two-dimensional design knowledge, I'm frequently tasked with using all my knowledge and experience to design and produce solutions to communication problems, often crafting custom solutions that are simple and effective.

My family tree's roots are in the Appalachian Mountains, going back several generations throughout the Bland, Wythe, and Smyth County regions. I take great pride in my Appalachian Heritage and all the wonders that Southwest Virginia holds. As a proud member of the Emory & Henry College staff, I also take great pride in begin able to give back to the area that has given me so much.

In my spare time, I enjoy studying design and web techologies, watching football and spending time with my wife and kids.
