Making Learning Fun. 

I believe that leading a fulfilling life includes using your talents to help others. My passions include sharing STEM knowledge with adults and children of all ages; increasing diversity in the tech industry; and helping change the world through entrepreneurship & philanthropy.

My style of Instructional Design and Curriculum Development uses blended learning to reach all types of learners. I strike a balance between professionalism, passion, and fun. Where appropriate, I pull from my background in theatre, public speaking, and even improvisational comedy to create a learning atmosphere that:

Keeps learners motivated and engaged

Boosts confidence and self esteem

Promotes learning and recollection of complex, technical subjects
