Coleman is an accomplished journalist and photographer who focuses on media relations and digital content development for Jackson Spalding’s real estate accounts. Prior to joining us, he spent eight years as a freelance consultant to clients like the Atlanta Braves. Creative assignments ranged from websites to email marketing strategy to comprehensive public relations plans, but he also scored bylines in Delta Sky Magazine, Blue Ridge Outdoors and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, among others.
Before striking out on his own, Coleman worked as Communications Director for the Georgia Conservancy and as an editor for France Media, Inc., a business-to-business publishing company that closely chronicles the commercial real estate industry through trades such as Shopping Center Business.
He was originally interested in an art degree, but opted instead for The Grady College at the University of Georgia, where he earned a B.A. in Journalism. He’s a first-generation college grad who made the most of intriguing electives ranging from backpacking to anthropology. In fact, he earned summer credit for an archeology dig in middle Georgia where he recovered Native American artifacts from the 13 and 14th century.
Coleman is a devoted outdoorsman and has experienced some of his greatest memories while answering the call of the wild. He can claim rock-climbing in Mexico and Montana, orienteering the Appalachian Trail and paddling four days straight on the Savannah River among his many adventures. His first time boarding a plane unattended was for a skydiving trip, assuring that he will always have more take-offs than landings when it comes to air travel.
Other interests include home brewing, sustainability and local farming, which all came together when he wrote his favorite article on “the most local brew” for Zymurgy, the national bible for hops enthusiasts.
Coleman and his wife, Jessica, reside within walking distance of the Chattahoochee River National Recreational Area.
