Build Better Learning Products

Through the convergence of technology and proven educational models, I help build cutting edge educational technologies.

Build Better Learning Organizations

With focus on eyes on data and ears on people, I help build efficient and effective learning organizations.

Build Better People

Working with people to find their passion, motivation and why.

Build Better Growth Models

Use technology and people to create exponential growth.

Challenge Conformity

The opposite of success is not failure, rather it is conformity. Conventional wisdom in business can sometimes inhibit change. I use a process of keeping my eyes on data and ears on people to change behavior and disrupt conformity.
