CEO, Developer and Educator
I am the CEO of Bead Pond Media, Inc. I am the husband of 1 and father of 4 wonderful children. I was born in Gainesville, FL, and I keep coming back to this awesome place. I have lived in Gainesville now for a fourth time. I attended Santa Fe College and the University of Florida; graduating in 1999. I then went to Seminary and graduated from Mercer University, Atlanta, in 2003. The best part of that day was that I was married to my beautiful bride that same afternoon. I transplanted our family into Gator country the next day, and the rest is becoming history as we seek to be a part of Gainesville’s educational technology future. I am a Special Education teacher, and I see first hand the ever-present needs and struggles of our students trying to access learning tools. This is a starting point for our inspirations.

I love spending as much time as possible with my family and also enjoy participating in any musical or athletic activities. I am grateful to have the opportunity to be part of Bead Pond Media, working closely with my big brother, Kiffin, to develop high quality and purposeful media experiences.
