Hello and Welcome.
This website is my equivalent of coffee and a chat. Here you will find a bit of personal stories, thoughts about the field of education in general, and some resources, videos produced, projects completed, conference presentations, and other herbs. Most of all, I hope this website will help to tell a story of how I got here, and convey how grateful I am for the opportunities and experiences I have been privileged with.
As you browse through the pages of the site, I hope that some of the narrative about the many roads that led to the (once unlikely) here and now, will help provide a perspective that may be helpful. The main thing about my "here and now" is that it was made possible mainly through "trusting the process", and a lot of indispensable support from colleagues, friends, and loved ones.
You will also find several pictures of special moments through the years. Some old, some new. Some with my students, some with my professors, some with colleagues, some with friends. A lot of "work" and a lot of "play". All special memories of this journey that I love so much.
Please feel free to contact me by email by clicking here.
I am looking forward to sharing my passion for the teaching and learning process. Once again, welcome!
