He is a family man who learned about learning by being curious. Since childhood, he has always been motivated by challenging himself. Heck, he was 1 of 10 kids. . . one could say he was born into a challenge! But he discovered his love of learning in an outside-the-box way. School for him was too impersonal, routine, and disconnected from reality. He would run home after school and spend hours in his backyard canyon creating forts, designing go-karts, and taking thins apart.
He discovered that learning is personal to the learner.
He has been a part of ten different educational spaces – with roles from Instructional Assistant to Campus Principal – he has developed a deep passion for changing the way we “Do School” and ultimately Learning.
