Doug’s first “real” job was as a trainer in the audio-visual department of his college library. Over 39 years later, he is still passionately teaching people how to effectively communicate with those delightfully challenging tools that we call “technology.” Every year, Doug leads hundreds of conference sessions and professional development seminars for school-teachers all over Tennessee and Kentucky.
Doug is an “MK” (Missionary Kid). He grew up in East Africa where his parents were missionaries for thirty years. Doug holds a BS in Accounting & Business Administration from Charleston Southern University. He has been married to his wife Libby for 37 years and they have two adult children and two grandchildren. Their daughter, Rebecca, teaches math at Independence High School in Williamson County and is married to Hunter Moss. Their son, Jonathan is married to Leah Frances and is a Statistical Analyst at Mississippi State University. A plethora of adorable pictures and delightful videos of the two most beautiful grandchildren on the planet are available upon request!
Doug is an energetic and passionate technology presenter. His expertise with all aspects of instructional technology makes him a great resource for classroom teachers and technology coordinators.

When you need a trainer, you have many choices. None are better than Doug. Professional, knowledgeable and personable. You can't ask for more! Jimmy Anderson, Technology Director, Dyersburg City Schools
Doug is the most knowledgeable presenter concerning classroom equipment and its benefits we have experienced since I became Technology Director 5 years ago. The information he provides is far more beneficial than any other vendors or on-line trainings we have used. His easy-going and friendly personality makes the teachers comfortable and he is always available for Q & A long after the sessions end. Barbara A. Young, Director of Technology, Bledsoe County Schools
Doug is professional, friendly and truly and asset/resource for us. He answers our questions quickly and always with a smile. He is always after what we need to accomplish our goal and not just what he has to sell. We really appreciate that. Ardee Reyes Chua, Metro Nashville Public Schools
