A little about me. I LOVE technology, gadgets and helping youth unleash their creativity and ideas with powerful tools. I love being in water whether it's frozen or liquid. Music and outdoor recreation are my passion. I look forward working with you this year and helping you discover what you can do with technology as a tool for school, personal, community and fun.
