I have the following qualities:

  • I am a lifelong learner.
  • I am interested in lots of things and love to pursue those interests.
  • I like to exercise and get outside. I don’t particularly obsess about it, but I like to eat good food so I exercise out of necessity.
  • I am a nerd who loves dabble with new technologies. You can find some of the things I’m experimenting with now in the Experimental drop-down above.
  • I read a lot. Books, blogs, articles. Mostly about education, entrepreneurship, and innovation, but I like fiction, too.
  • I like listening to podcasts. Some of my current favorites are This American Life, Heavyweight, and MacBreak Weekly. My current favorite app for podcast consumption is Overcast on iOS.

A brief history

I am currently the Director of Career & Innovation for a school district in Fort Collins, Colorado. I’ve been in this role since June 2018.

Before landing here, I spent five years working on innovative learning initiatives on the education team at a Silicon Valley company that was started in a garage by two guys named Steve.

I have been a teacher, instructional technologist, and principal in Loveland, Colorado, Greeley, Colorado, and Broward County, Florida. I have also been an adjunct professor of educational leadership at Colorado State University where I taught Ethics and School Resource Management.
