About Me

I'm a lifelong learner and eductator. I am currently working at Udacity as a curriculum manager helping to create, manage, and analyze course content. I have worked in K12, Higher Education, owned a video production business (V-dog Video), been a partner in an EdTech traning tompany (EdTechSages), and coached track and basketball. I really enjoy traveling with his wife and friends, hiking/backbacking, blogging, playing video games, watching great content and trying new technologies.
I'm highly passionate about helping others, providing students with the best possible education, and learning new skills.

Where to Find Me



I worked in education for 18 years, both in K-12 and Higher Eduation with a goal of providing students with the best possible education I could provide. I have also helped other educators, schools, and districts learn to provide better education through effective use of Technology. Now I'm working with subject matter experts to create amazing hands-on courses at Udacity. I have also been working to create streamlined proesses for our workflows.


Life Long Learner

While I started my career in Special Education, I have continued to learn and adapt my skills. I found that I have a passion for technolgy and was able to apply that passion to education. Not only have I gained skills in computer science, and programming, but I have helped others to learn those skills, and created courses and programs to support that learning I'm currently working on obtaining my Lean Six Sigma Green Belt.


Travel Bug

My wife and I love to travel as well. We try to visit someplace new every year, but we have our favorites as well. Traveling has helped us to experience the great wonders of nature as well as some of the most wonderful people, culture, and cities. I learn so much each time I visit a new place.
