About Me


Professional:
I am an Instructional Designer at Hofstra University.

I like to speak about technology and global education at #140confs and IgniteNYC. I help teachers redesign traditional lessons by integrating technology into their classrooms.

In a previous life I was
 Director of Technology at a K-8 school in Long Island. I was both technology teacher for every grade and the building's IT Director. I have also served as a Physical Education teacher and a football coach. I used to play and coach semi-pro football in Norway, Denmark and France.
