COLUMBIA, SC -- "The Birth of Jenkins Typography." After a long foray into South Carolina state government and using computers for state agencies, in1992, it was time for me to utilize my skills in a new venture. Therefore, Jenkins Typography was born. (That's all the birthing we guys can do). I honed my skills in the English language from high school through college and began editing others' writing. After earning my B.A. in 1980, I joined PBS affiliate South Carolina ETV as a camera operator and studio technician. I earned my secondary English teaching certification and joined Richland School District Two as Instructional Television Coordinator. At this point, I was using computers to create the database of all the district's videotape holdings. I spread my wings as Jenkins Typography in 1992 to create everything from a résumé to a business card to a modern history book of Ebenezer Lutheran Church, Columbia, SC. When I'm not on the computer (as personal computing is, of course, my number one hobby), my hobbies include music, theatre, ballet and Christian radio, where I serve as host for "Awake Columbia," "Praisin' the Power Countdown," and co-host of Solid Rock Weekend at AM 1470 WQXL The Voice of Revival in Columbia. While I still own and listen to my Beatles albums, my music tastes span the inspirational side from Darlene Zschech/Hillsongs Australia to Five Iron Frenzy and Blindside. My absolute favorite music is along the lines of the late Rich Mullins (a Ragamuffin Band, Rick Elias, This Train, Beki Hemingway, and Ashley Cleveland). I have a 15 year-old feline named Garp (after the Irving book's lead character) who is afraid of ska music and pictures of himself on television. My other companion is a rapidly growing kittycat named "LC" (short for Little Cali, named after her mother Cali, the "campus cat" of Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary). That's about it. Thanks for venturing onto my site!
