I’ve taught technology for 15 years to students & professionals ranging from two to Ph.D.. What kind of technologies, you ask? Everything from ceramics, soldering and music production to video games production, sensors, prototyping & wireless communication.
Organizations where I’ve taught include SparkFun Electronics, Discovery Education Headquarters, New York University, Tufts University, University of Colorado, Colorado State University, M.I.T., Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Stetson University, Longwood University, University of Arkansas, East Carolina University, University of Massachusetts, Hampshire College, University of Wyoming, T.E.I. in Canada, DESIGN West, the National Science Teachers Association conference, Uganda, at multiple Maker Faires, Mini Maker Faires, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Science Museum Oklahoma Network, Arkansas Museum of Discovery, Science Museum of Minnesota, Union Station Science City, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Strategic Air and Space Museum, Fat Brain Toys, US Public and Private K-12, US Library systems, a multitude of after school programs and at the United States of America’s Science & Engineering Festival (2012 & 2014).
Topics I’ve covered include programming, animation, game design, video & sound editing, soldering in many forms, sensors, actuators, microcontrollers and wireless networks, as well as other overarching educational & technological skills. The National Center for OpenSource & Education presented my free educational material at the FOSSEd & OSCON conferences in 2011. The first Educational Outreach Coordinator at SparkFun Electronics, I was teaching prior to the formation of the Department of Education & co-founded the department. While at SparkFun I created the content for & led the twelve primary classes, grew the department from a size of two people to a size of eight, led one of the first teams in the US to teach microcontrollers in a public elementary school, copiloted SparkFun Education’s National Tour offering workshops to organizations and schools across the nation, created multiple lines of educational hardware products, hosted multiple international contacts & led an Arduino class attended by 150 professionals at the first Make a MakerSpace, as produced by Artisan’s Asylum and Maker Media in January of 2013. In 2014 I worked with Ugandan technology educators Fundi Bots to help establish the first public African branded technology education “space” called a Fundi Space. During this time I trained educators, managed a team doing curriculum creation, conducted more than thirty workshops, led a successful international Research & Development team of eight in creating electronic farm automation solutions as well as prototyping multiple other product lines for my African clients.
Currently I develop materials and prototypes for clients, teach workshops and hang out at my local Maker Space.

Located in the Boulder, CO area but happy to travel.Project contracts handled on a case by case basis. No two people or projects are the same, why would I treat them as if they were?
