If you're not currently teaching, what are you focused on?:
Creating experiences in schools that encourage creativity, wonder and learning through maker-centered learning.
"Wood and wood tools"
I believe that making things develops the creative confidence and problem-solving skills people need to be successful in life. Jobs of today (and tomorrow) demand creativity and execution. The best way to learn and exercise these skills is simply to practice - by making things. I help schools and other organizations figure out how to do this.
I’m a maker myself. I make new products, companies, schools, workshops, airplanes, treehouses, zip lines, drones, boats, pens and lots of other things. A toy I co-Invented, Maker Studio, is currently for sale in Target and Barnes & Noble.
