Creative Technologist

I’m a self-taught creative technologist and an agile generalist with a particular interest in systemic innovation and frontier technologies. I’m looking for a creative, open-minded, truly collaborative team responsible for producing meaningful work. 

Over the past 20+ years, I’ve joined early stage startups as a self-taught programmer; analyzed the successful and unsuccessful uses of emerging technologies across many industries in order to propose and develop products and processes for use in education; created a dozen functional education prototypes using virtual reality, affective computing, robotics, and more; managed relationships with incubators and entrepreneurs in New York, Boston, and Washington, DC; trained hundreds of colleagues in rapid prototyping; served as director of an innovation community of over 250 coworkers; presented at dozens of local, national, and international conferences; co-hosted five episodes of The EdTech Podcast; represented Pearson, the world’s largest education company, while meeting with university administrators and government officials in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Colombia, and Sweden; established and maintained connections with a wide range of innovative small businesses for potential collaboration and partnership; managed the merger of two corporate IT teams for a major insurance company in Australia; and started my own, bootstrapped company, which I ran for three years, building several mobile-first, location-based applications, from initial concept through design, development, user testing, release, sales, maintenance, and shutdown. Most recently, I conceived of and designed BeSync, an information exchange system that functions across both physical and virtual systems. I am making this code available as open source software. 

I have nearly 25 years of entrepreneurial and corporate experience and a passion for problem solving through technology and human ingenuity,
