I’m the Executive Director of Open Education Global where I have the good fortune to lead an awesome global team and community of members in advocating for and adopting new forms of open education enabled by digital technology, the Internet, and cultures of sharing. I’ve got four different degrees and a diverse background that cuts across arts, science, education and technology so I enjoy applying multi-disciplinary big picture thinking to imagining an open future. I have a special interest in sustainable models for open and while working at Creative Commons co-wrote with Sarah Pearson a Kickstarter funded book called “Made With Creative Commons” (2017) providing case studies and a framework for thinking about how open and sharing can make financial sense.
On the personal front I paint, do poetry (including edible poetry), play music, and enjoy the outdoors. I’m based in Vancouver Canada.
