Stratton Tingle is a native of New Orleans and a Chattanoogan by choice. After spending his formative years in Cape Girardeau, MO, Tingle relocated to the Scenic City in 2001 to attend Southern Adventist University, where he graduated with a B.S. in Film Production. He spent his sophomore year living in Zambia, Africa as a student volunteer for the World Food Programme. Tingle has been sporting his signature dreadlocked hairstyle ever since.
Tingle currently works as the senior account executive for the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce, and in his off time, he fronts the local band Prophets and Kings. He serves on the board of ArtsBuild as the chair of the Bill Holmberg Arts Leadership Institute and was featured in Chattanooga’s Dancing with the Stars fundraiser in 2012 to benefit the Partnership for Families, Children, and Adults. Stratton also chairs the annual Chattanooga Corporate Dodgeball Tournament on behalf of the Cherokee Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, and he regularly volunteers for a host of other organizations including YPAC, the Chattanooga Skatepark Project and Chattanooga Business Group.
