Eldon was born and raised in Iowa Falls, Iowa – a beautiful and scenic small town in the north-central region of the Hawkeye State. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from Grand View College (now University) in Mass Communications with an emphasis in Photography.
Spending the majority of his professional career working as a photo and video editor in the publications industry, Eldon also worked for several years in professional baseball, as a creative services manager, focusing on photography, video and social media.
Eldon joined the DePauw team in January, 2017 to run the university’s social media accounts and aid the admissions office with marketing efforts. He has a fierce passion for storytelling and content creation in the form of photos, video and of course, social media.
He lives in Indianapolis with his wife, Diann. They enjoy attending local sporting events, music festivals and concerts and venturing out on photographic adventures together. They hope to one day have a pet fish. Eldon is a die-hard baseball fan and is thankful the Tiger color scheme is Black & Gold because it matches his beloved Iowa Hawkeyes and thus, most of his wardrobe.
