Tshaka Armstrong has always been a geek and a story teller! Having poetry published as a youth and adult, Tshaka took his love for a beautifully crafted yarn to television where he’s won numerous awards, including Emmys and an Edward R. Murrow award.
It wasn’t until he took on the role of family man that he saw his gifts come into their full fruition. Along the way as he’s done his best to nurture his own family, Tshaka has also been an integral part of growing large online communities and rocked social media!
As the family tech guy (you know, the one relatives call when they have computer issues), Tshaka found that gadgets were helping drive a wedge between parents and their children. The adults were often missing out on so many “teach! able moments” due to their children having separate online lives that those parents were, quite often, completely oblivious to.
Tshaka found the inspiration to create Digital Shepherds after working in investigative news. There was story after story about how the internet and mobile technologies were being used to prey on children and how children were naively making themselves victims due to their own lack of digital literacy. Mr. Armstrong said, “enough is enough,” and Digital Shepherds was born.
