It is said: “… if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life!”
I have been fortunate to invest my career in solving problems and building educational products and programs – I have not “worked” many days at all!
How I Might Be Able to Add Value
I am always looking for the next mountain to climb in education. My consultancy, Accentuate Learning, allows me to scale resourcing to meet your needs if necessary.
Let’s Exchange Ideas
My specialties include science and math education, career readiness education, STEM, serious games, and EdTech. If you have a need or simply want to discuss these areas contact me!
I have presented and engaged many different groups of various sizes on both business ideas and academic topics. If there is a way I can help your event/organization let’s chat!
