I'm an Educational Technology Specialist at Union School District in Rimersburg, Pennsylvania. My primary function is to provide a direction for the use of technology in the classrooms.

Providing our students with tools to become 21st century learners needs to be at the forefront of everything we do in education. Supporting our teachers with the tools and understanding to successfully integrate a 21st century learning environment is where it all starts. Working closely with the education department, I offer technical insight and resources for effective online learning as well as integration. I use the "velvet hammer" approach, thoroughly demonstrating the benefits of a new technology to provide educators motivation to buy into the newest technology. In order to job ready students for todays careers, they need to be exposed to STEM based resources such as; Drones, 3D printers, virtural reality, CNC routers, laser cutters, CAD platforms, graphical design, and other cutting edge tools.

With additional services ranging from data center implementation to end-user support, I take a great deal of pride in offering people solutions or skills which enable them to become more effective at their job.

In addition to my work life, I deeply enjoy wood working and web design. I have worked with a variety of businesses to establish for them a web presence, improving their image, marketing their assets, and telling thier story. I encourage you to visit the "Woodworking" section of my site to see a few of the other interests I have.
