Morgan has been building great websites since he was in high school. Although he didn't own a computer at the time, he enrolled in an elective computer science class that included learning HTML. Amazed that he could create something that anyone in the world could view at any time, he was hooked. After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BFA in Graphic Design, he spent three years at Ethyl Corporation (now NewMarket Corp) as a web designer in the IT department and also as a designer and brand consultant in the marketing department. During his tenure, he designed highly targeted business collateral and assisted with the branding transition from Ethyl Corporation to Afton Chemical (now NewMarket Corp) by writing the brand standards guidelines for this international corporation.
Morgan began his graphic design consulting business shortly after leaving Afton Chemical. During his 11 years as a web designer and consultant, he has built hundreds of websites for small businesses, large corporations, non-profit organizations and political campaigns. He has managed website projects built on many different content management systems, including Wordpress and ExpressionEngine. Morgan's clients have spanned various industries, including medical, law, government, retail, banking, non-profit and real estate.
Morgan co-founded L+R with Thomas Brewer in the early summer of 2013. Usually the first person our clients come into contact with, Morgan is instrumental in client relations, and as managing partner, he handles all of the back-end business as well as the day-to-day operations, leading a team of more than 11 L+R designers and developers located across the globe.
A former adjunct professor at Virginia State University, Morgan still speaks at both VSU and VCU when his schedule allows. When he's not running the company, Morgan is usually having fun with his wife and two small children, or watching sports - particularly VCU Basketball or World Cup Soccer.
