My name is Jonathan Chestnut, and I'm originally from Fayetteville, NC. I did my undergraduate work at Fayetteville State University in my hometown, and went on to receive my Masters of Fine Arts from the Memphis College of Art in Memphis, Tennessee. After graduate school, I went to work as a graphic artist for a while, with Booz, Allen and Hamilton, a government contract group under which I designed publications for the Deputy Undersecretary of Defense. My work allowed me to gather experience in photography and computer graphics, as well as 3-D modeling before beginning my life as a teacher. Before joining the faculty of Fayetteville State University, I also worked for Belk Advertising, designing periodical advertising as well as internal company materials. I then served Cumberland County Schools in Fayetteville, NC and its environs for five years in the capacity of art teacher for kindergarten through fifth grade. I have been a professor of computer graphics and animation for 9 years now at my alma mater, and was awarded Teacher of the Year for 2010-2011.
