As co-founder of the United States Creativity Group (USCG) and the DeWitt Creativity Group (DCG) (along with fellow educational leader Jason Lafay) I am interested in using creativity to change society and impact the
climate of education by developing, supporting, and celebrating talent.
By utilizing assets and thinking outside-the-box I will continue to create opportunities for students, life-long learners, and visionaries who want to make a positive impact on schools, communities, the workplace, and
beyond. I am excited about finding a network of passionate educators, artists, and others interested in providing students with the 21st century skills needed to compete in a global society. My interest is to create opportunities
for students by networking with those determined to redefine traditional educational practices by implementing new ideas pertaining to entrepreneurial education, project based learning, self-interest exploratory programs,
creative use of digital media and the arts, along with other innovative practices. Schools must start to place a higher emphasis on producing creative leaders who are social innovators,entrepreneurs, and adaptive members of society. My goal is to work with people interested in "becoming the
solution" while using creativity and innovation to implement positive changes in education.
