First off, Hello! My name is William Deacon and I love designing and developing websites. I currently have 3 years of experience in the web industry, in both the private and government setting. I graduated from James Madison University in 2010, where I majored in Media Arts and Design concentrating in Interactive Media and minored in Computer Information Systems. I was very active at JMU and a member of several clubs and organizations including: the Marching Royal Dukes, Kappa Kappa Psi, National Honorary Band Fraternity (Beta Zeta class, Spring 2007) and SafeRides.
Currently, I work for Engility Corporation as a web designer and developer supporting the Thomas Jefferson Award-winning Army.mil web services contract. In short, I design and develop websites, branding elements, and social media designs for the U.S. Army. In addition to Army.mil winning the Thomas Jefferson Award for the past 3 years, some of the projects I have been a major part of have been features on national TV programs including The Daily Show with John Stewart.
I try to stay active as much as possible. I am a volunteer firefighter and EMT-Basic in Fairfax County, VA at the Burke Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department, where I currently serve as the department's Public Information Officer and have volunteered over 1,000 hours in the past year. I have been an EMT for 6 years now, and I recently graduated from Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department's Volunteer Fire Academy. I am also an Eagle Scout of the Boy Scouts of America. I contribute much of my leadership drive and determination to these activities.
