Clay Morgan is a Senior Consultant for Leath Group, LLC—a dynamic curriculum development and intellectual property greenhouse that grows leaders and shapes cultures. As an author and speaker, Clay has presented extensively. In addition to his first book, Undead: Revived, Resuscitated, and Reborn (Abingdon Press), Clay’s work has appeared in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Patheos, Problogger, Ministry Matters, Pop Matters, and beyond.

A passionate teacher, Clay has taught history, political science, research, and communication at the University of Pittsburgh, Robert Morris University, Community College of Allegheny County, the University of Phoenix, and California University of Pennsylvania. After fully developing 18 courses in eight years for his own sections, he was contracted to rewrite a course on human communication for Robert Morris University’s organizational leadership program.

Clay is always tinkering with developments in educational technologies and looking for new ways to make classrooms and curriculum more dynamic. He is a regular speaker at academic conferences, where he teaches fellow educators how to better engage students of all ages, particularly through the use of web-based tools.

Aside from teaching, Clay has worked as a research and writing consultant for a variety of organizations, most notably the National Parks Service, Careerlink, and Infinity Broadcasting. He served as head editor for Infinity’s Pittsburgh E Resource—a biweekly publication with more than 100,000 readers. In that role, he managed contributions by more than two dozen contributors, wrote sales and marketing copy for clients, and coordinated layout and design with graphic artists. From there, he moved on to a more journalistic role, covering stories around Southwestern Pennsylvania as head writer for The Monthly Post.

Clay has overseen other projects, including the implementation of a supplemental education services program for a private tutoring company in multiple city schools. He also was director of a large, annual movie festival which brings in thousands of people each year. In that position he handled media publicity and coordinated with theater management and staff. Other past projects under Clay’s care included the coordination and oversight of large college student groups to New York City and Washington D.C., the development and launch of five websites, and the launch of his own book, which he ran in conjunction with Abingdon Press.

Prior to teaching, Clay started a successful résumé writing service in which he was able to help hundreds of jobseekers at job fairs and Careerlink workshops. He loves communicating all sorts of topics to diverse audiences through multiple media. As a blogger, vlogger, and podcaster, he continually experiments with creative ways to communicate his unique teaching style to online audiences hungry for entertaining answers delivered quickly.

He lives in a quiet writing cave in Dallas, having relocated from Pittsburgh this past January.
