I am a public education director of Educational Technology and Innovation, a Design Project Manager, involved with architecture and learning space design. A former research and teaching assistant in the College of Education at Michigan State University, with prior experience in law enforcement, architecture, art and design before becoming involved in technological services to those with special needs, working in universities (including teaching at both Michigan State and Grand Valley State Universities), K-12 schools, businesses, and vocational rehabilitation services.
