David Gwaltney

Online Advertising & SEO Specialist

David hails from the hills of Bristol, Tennessee/Virginia, where he was surrounded by the rich Appalachian culture—from music and storytelling to Dollywood. David entered the world of digital marketing when he began to promote his own creative projects in 2005. He was an early adopter of social media as a marketing method at age 18, and grew with the platforms as they evolved into paid advertising in 2009. This foundation ultimately led him to Google AdWords. David is now Google AdWords certified, with a focus in video advertising.

He earned his BFA in Film and Television Production from New York University, and later, his MA in New Media from East Tennessee State University. Intent on immersing himself in the local creative community, David moved to Asheville in fall of 2016. Since then, he has been involved in the local music scene, experimental theater, improv comedy, and community building.

David is an independent musician and video producer. His films have been screened at film festivals across the country. He has spent the last few years traveling with his music and participating in artist residencies. David joined the JB Media team in October 2017 as Google AdWords Specialist. He is passionate about supporting local start-ups, nonprofits, and companies with strong values. David is happy to have found a home at JB Media, where he feels his values are celebrated and his growth encouraged.

David brings a unique set of skills to the table. He’s experienced with media, data, and web technologies that translate perfectly for managing AdWords campaigns. He is a great listener and always puts the client’s needs first.
