Introduction
After almost a decade in the video and television industry, I hung up my producer hat and embarked on a career in education. Using industry experience, I created an award winning video production program at El Diamante High School in Visalia, CA. 

As a Google for Education Certified Innovator and Trainer, Apple Distinguished Educator, and Apple Certified Trainer, I lead professional development workshops across the globe on Google’s collaborative tools, social media, and video production.

Today, I am the Director of Global Development at EdTechTeam, a group of passionate educators working to change education.  We run the EdTechTeam Global Summits featuring Google in Education.  Check out our work at www.gafesummit.com.
