Jackson grew up in the spectacular landscape of Western North Carolina near the Cherokee Indian Reservation and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Lakes, rivers and streams abound in Jackson’s part of the state. He grew to love the great outdoors while kayak fishing, hiking and golfing. In fact, he worked at the local golf course from the time he was a young boy on-and fell deeply in love with the sport.
Jackson moved to the Piedmont to study Mass Media Communications at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC). After earning his BA, he stayed, and in a few years put together a work portfolio that included Lowe’s Companies, Inc., Lake Norman Publications and ClickItGolf.com.
Jackson is project manager for Interact, and delivers the voice of Interact through the various social media outlets. He is driven by his passion in storytelling, whether it’s through an 800 word article, a 140 character tweet or a single photo.
Jackson pulls from a reservoir of experience, knowledge and intuition. He knows journalism, sports writing, e-commerce, video, social media…and the Bagpipes, which are one of his more unusual talents.
Jackson and his wife Laura are presently in the throws of the miraculous welcome of twins, Ruby and Mac.
