LEADING + LEARNING BY EXPLORING NEW FRONTIERS.
Throughout my life, I have been passionate about education, design, and improving the future of our world for all. Whether working with teachers to design project and game based learning experiences, supporting schools to bring community members and programs into classrooms, partnering with local artist and musicians to train them to use new tools, coaching instructors with strategies that engage, challenge, and inspire students, or starting my own company to foster a music based community, I integrate a vision for a better future into my daily life and practice.
My life is founded in one desire:
I WANT TO CHANGE THE FUTURE OF THIS WORLD.
As the first born of four and the oldest in my neighborhood while growing up, teaching is my first passion. My desire to teach continues to be more about impacting the future for good than about being in a classroom with students.
Explore my work as an educator to students of all ages and disciplines.
Good design makes things easier to learn. As the pace of our world continues quicken, the need to design learning experiences is even more important than before.
Review resources I have developed to support others.
Throughout my life, I have always sought opportunities to grow and develop as a person. From planning entrepreneurship and coding conferences for 200+ people to facilitating a round table at the Lean Startup Conference and leading a workshop at STEMCON, I seek opportunities to share and learn with others.
One of my guiding principles: Teaching is as much leading, as leading is teaching, because teaching is listening and leaders listen. Read more about some of the ways I lead and work with others.
