Husband, father of four,
friend to many….
I have lived in North Carolina my entire life. I was born in Charlotte and moved to the then small town of Matthews with my parents at the age of four. The oldest of three, I have a sister and a brother. We have always been a close family and I appreciate their constant love and support throughout my life.
I attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and graduated with a B.A. in Studio Art. I also received Minor degrees in Classical Studies, Creative Writing, and Psychology. It was at UNCW where I met the love of my life, Jen.
Jen and I became best friends and began dating after a few years. After graduating from UNCW, I decided to “pop the question” on Christmas Day in 2004. We moved from Wilmington to Matthews in 2005, and were married on September 9, 2006 on the beach at Ocean Isle Beach, NC.
My wife and I live in Matthews with our four precious children, Robert, William, Elisabeth, and Gretchen. The Aycocks are big Disney fans and enjoy vacationing as a family through the Disney Vacation Club. Completing our family is our adorable rescued dog, Wendy. You can guess where her name came from.
I taught Art at the middle and elementary school levels from 2005 – 2009 before leaving the teaching world to join Corporate America. For two years I worked for a successful online marketing agency based out of Charlotte and was their Chief Marketing Officer. In 2011, I founded my own social media marketing company, which I ran for two years. In February 2013, I accepted the position of Web Coordinator at Cannon School, an independent college-preparatory school in Concord, NC.
