After a 2o-year career producing entertainment and education technologies, I turned my pursuits toward developing curriculum and projects that help young people build life skills for the workforce. In addition, I hope to instill a love of math and science in our students by connecting them with real-world projects and technologies, as well as pop culture. At iLEAD Encino, I have taken responsibility for building a science department that includes modern STEM tools and skills, a STEAM lab for 3D printing and general tinkering, and an age-appropriate, highly accessible science library. In addition, I manage on-site technology issues and mentor facilitators in the use of online programs to assist in providing 21st Century skills. Most importantly, I strive to connect with every unique learner to help them grow and realize their dreams.
