About Me

jr_square_250Thanks for stopping by.

Technologist and educational consultant. I build and study tech that helps people learn. I also like to go outside a lot and take pictures.

My research focuses on participation within digital spaces and how participation can be tracked and measured in ways that can inform theories of learning.

I am an educational consultant at Millennial Associates and serve as the group's managing partner. I am also the coordinator of the Faculty Assistance Center for Technology (factuic.org) at the UIC College of Education and am the technology coordinator at the GlobalEd 2 curriculum project (globaled2.com).
