Hi there, that’s me up top with the microphone. I was at the 2016 PLTW Summit in Indianapolis, Indiana, doing one of my favorite things, teaching teachers about technology.
I love the multiplication effect that takes place when I can do this. By making a room full of teachers a little bit more prepared or a little bit more effective, I can, in some small way, make things better for each student they teach from now on.
That’s really at the core of who I am; I pour myself into each presentation, video, or blog post to make something that will help people in a practical and scalable way.
I loved my time in the classroom and enjoyed being a high school science teacher. I feel like I positively impacted my students and created systems at my school that will last beyond my presence.
Now, I am working in the corporate world. I am using the skills and knowledge from a decade of teaching and enhance the working lives of thousands of health care workers.
Wherever I go, I plan on helping people be better by making cool stuff.
I was first exposed to the concept of an Impossible List by Thomas Frank. Essentially an Impossible List is a cross between a Hydra and Bucket List. As you cross items off your Impossible List, you replace those items with harder versions. This encourages perpetual growth. See mine here.
In some ways, this website is my resume, but if you want to work with me and you want to see my bona fides feel free to check them out here.
