I used to teach industrial types to think critically in order to accomplish more with less effort. Now I do the same thing for teenagers.

Growing up as a blonde kid in Taiwan, I thought I had a good handle on what ‘weird’ was, but then moved to Seattle for University and had my horizons expanded. Since then, I’ve moved back to Asia, gotten published, opened and managed an office for a previous employer, inspected construction sites in the UAE, ridden elephants and camels, traveled around China as a continuous improvement consultant, jumped off the Macao Tower, coached soccer at several international tournaments, stayed in a yurt then climbed a volcano the next week, created a website about digital badges (it is no more), and then decided to bring my skills into the classroom. What all this has taught me is that - more than Taiwan, Seattle, or anywhere else - life is weird, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Oh, and I married this girl, who is pretty spectacular.

I love coffee, Kierkegaard, and gummy candies. Preferably at the same time.
