I love learning and I enjoy spending time each day in thought and reflection.

When my mind isn't jumping between shiny object(s), I love exploring learning theories, open education, blended learning, professional learning, and education reform. Sometimes those thoughts are out loud.

Professionally, I am fortunate to do something I love every day of my life. A former elementary teacher, I have since served as online learning specialist on the student and adult learning side, online professional development coordinator, blended learning program manager, and currently with EdTech Team as the Chief Learning Officer supporting world class learning opportunities for children and adults around the globe.

With more than six years of progressively responsible experience in eLearning and Blended Learning, I am consulted around ideas of strategic design and innovation in public and private schools internationally to support the professional development and redesign of classrooms, pedagogy, and traditional instructional models, to better serve all learners.

Personally, my faith, family, and fellowship are what drive me and my decisions every day. I am blessed with a beautiful and patient wife, Lora (Mamawack), two awesome kids, a Golden Retriever (Jack) and a Duck Tolling Retriever (Mason). I love that my family shares my passion for the outdoors; hiking, camping, snowshoeing, skiing/boarding, swimming, and riding on things with wheels.
