If you're not currently teaching, what are you focused on?:
I'm the Regional Education Leader with Steelcase. My focus is on meeting with schools and critical audiences like architects to share our research into learning environments.
Much of my life has been influenced by educators. Whether it be my father who was a university professor, my high school band teacher who taught me lessons way beyond music or my English composition professor, they have been critical in shaping me as an individual. Today I am 100% focused on education clients and those influencing learning space design. At home, my wife teaches as does my daughter having recently graduated with her teaching certificate. Outside of work, I love to be outside. We take our dog Ed for daily walks, ride my bike or paddle my kayak in Puget Sound
