Learning Technologist, Fast-Paced Generalist, and a ‘Maker’

I am a creative technologist and a DIY aficionado. I cherish the smell of freshly cut wood, but I am at home making digital things.

I create modern learning experiences, be it online classes, in-person workshops or professional development courses. I designed an award-winning educational 3D Printer, taught in classrooms and ran hands-on workshops and MOOCs.

My approaches are steeped in cognitive sciences, design thinking, game-inspired learning, and both constructionist and constructivist approaches. I believe in curiosity and open-ended, learner-centered instruction.
