A digital native living in the South, Jackson Reeves is a jack-of-all-trades with experience in the education, journalism, and digital media industries. He currently works as the senior educator at Atlanta Tutors
. As a professional nerd, he teaches students algebra, geometry, and calculus; helps them improve their study skills; and coaches them to ace the entire battery of standardized tests, including the SAT, ACT, SSAT, ISEE, and Georgia Milestones.
He previously served as the digital media producer at Atlanta
magazine, one of the country's first city publications. There, he managed the magazine's social media endeavors and newsletter programs, updated the website with editorial content from the print edition each month, and wrote for the Daily Agenda and Covered Dish blogs.

Prior to joining Atlanta
, Reeves plugged away at various local and national newspapers and magazines and received a degree in media studies with minors in English and philosophy from Vassar College. The Sandy Springs native returned to his hometown in 2009 to escape the hassles of poststructuralist theory, immerse himself in Southern hospitality, and binge on pork belly. However, Reeves keeps his hipster side alive by writing the blogs Insightful/Incoherent
, Buffy & Barthes
, and Reunderstanding Media
, along with the Tumblr Media, Media, Media!
In his spare time, the twenty-eight-year-old enjoys reading the literature of Bret Easton Ellis and Anne Rivers Siddons, listening to Soundgarden and Sneaker Pimps, and watching anything written by Tina Fey. That, or getting outside and playing with his dog, Tucker. And he likes the Internet. A lot.
