I bring a cross-disciplinary background of user research, edtech, education and management to my work as executive leader, researcher and consultant. I am equally comfortable defining and executing commercial products, research projects, and educational initiatives. My domain knowledge includes online and in-person learning communities, computer supported collaborative learning, educational technology, education strategy, design thinking, online and hybrid learning, learning spaces, human computer interaction, and the learning sciences.
Though I am open to other arrangements, I typically collaborate with other individuals and teams in two ways: through funded projects that we co-develop and on existing projects as a consultant.
Project collaborations usually revolve around my research interests and background. Recently I’ve been interested in projects involving computational thinking, participatory art installations, data literacy and makerspaces.
If you have a project that you’d like to collaborate on with me, please reach out.
My consulting work focuses on technology-driven education tools and programs. I help organizations to design and develop technological tools and programs for learning. I often playing the role of a ‘critical friend’ to teams who are in moments of definition and change. My services include
- product and program definition

- makerspace design

- white paper and article writing
Recent consulting projects include
