I moved to Los Angeles to earn my M.F.A. in Film Production from Loyola Marymount University because what I really wanted to do was be a director....
After completing my M.F.A., I landed a job teaching cinematic arts and broadcast journalism, and fell in love with teaching.
My passion for digital storytelling grew as my students created authentic projects that had a real impact on their community. I realized the power that collaborative, student-centered learning has on students and now strive to share those ideas with other educators.
I've been fortunate to be recognized as an Apple Distinguished Educator, Google For Education Certified Innovator, and by major universities and national organizations for my work. Collaboration with these amazing peers fuels my journey to become a better educator and help others on their road to success. See my LinkedIn profile for more details.
