I currently reside in the metro-Richmond area of Virginia and have professionally served as an instructional technologist and senior public school district leader. Above all else, I value creativity and look for creative solutions to problems. I am author of the well-received 2008 book published by the ISTE press: RSS for Educators: Blogs, Newsfeeds, Podcasts and Wikis in the Classroom. I am a pioneer in the use of blogs and podcasts in K-12 education.
My professional experience has included managing an instructional technology team, making educational technology purchasing and budgeting decisions, school librarianship, and helping schools become Apple Distinguished Schools. I also have experience in strategic planning, organizational development, and graphics/video. I currently work for the Virginia Department of Education.
I attended Avon Lake High School—Ohio, the University of Rochester—New York, Case Western Reserve University—Cleveland, Ohio, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University—Blacksburg, Virginia, and Virgina Commonwealth University—Richmond, Virginia (2014). In addition to my experience in the field of education, I have experience in photography, graphic design, music composition and performance, and web design.
