microsoft innovative education expert since 2015


I enjoy sharing my expertise and helping others be the best that they can be as a friend, educator, or as an instructional designer; hoping to elevate others to fulfil their own destiny’s while sharing my life with my amazing wife ‘Michelle’.

Throughout my career as a teacher, I have had some amazing opportunities throughout my career and within my Professional Learning Network (PLN). I have attended some of the best learning experiences at worldwide conferences.
