Former classroom Teacher (grades 7-12), Learning Scientist, and Silicon Valley/SF EdTech leader. I've built technology training camps, helped Udacity design and launch its first Nanodegrees and started the R&D department at Udemy.
I am continuously fascinated by how people learn. How do we pick up new skills, acquire knowledge, and apply our learning to our personal and professional lives? My curiosity and expertise have helped me serve as an Educator in K-12, higher ed, and professional training, as a Researcher in both academic and commercial applications, and as an EdTech business builder in multiple US cities. Throughout it all, I've held to one prime directive: to get learning right.
Currently, I'm working with Educators and EdTech companies at the intersection of online education, learning sciences research, and product design. Message me if you'd like to learn more.
