Starting with a printed apparel company at the age of 18, which I built and operated for 10 years. I helped others express themselves by providing custom printed activewear - limited only by their imagination. I also provided custom artwork, including business logo, and advertisement design.
As a musician, I can play several different instruments, including drums (no, not at the same time). I have enjoyed playing professionally in a few bands, and also playing for church.
Ive been working with computers since the seventh grade. While using computers for graphic design, I saw computers as a powerful tool for inspiration, and expression. So for 15 years, I have been using information technology to inspire, and empower others. It has been an awesome experience. I have worked with countless different uses for PC's. Along the way, I have visited many interesting places, and met a lot of wonderful people.
A few years ago I decided that I wanted to find an opportunity to combine my skills, and talent for a good cause. Two years of R&D/Planning have gone into an idea perfect for me.
I have dedicated myself to inspire, and empower students using technology in some unique and innovative ways. My past efforts have been long term commitments involving success. This endeavor will also have my determination for many years to come. The design structure of my plans are dynamic which allow opportunity for great success - and I will succeed!
The amount and type of success depends on the level of involvement from people like you.
Participate a little, or a lot. Every bit helps. So, feed your curiosity by coming back to read about projects as more details are listed. Recent technologies, and their use, show such great promise to remove barriers in accessing a great education.
....well instead of trying to figure out how to write a compelling explanation of how... and ...why this will be interesting to many, I'm gonna get started posting the first project- for now.
But come back and I'll have more letters and words typed, that are so interesting you might think I created some new words.
Also, get a friend interested to learn about upcoming opportunities to empower students from all walks of life.
