'Learning Is Experience. Everything else is just information.'  ~Einstein

Whether delivering instruction in person or virtually, my trainings produce skill and mastery in all learners. 

I am a 20 year veteran teacher and curriculum designer. I specialize in  using experiential learning techniques to develop skill and mastery in my students.  

My professional training and personal coaching techniques are un-traditional but effective. Success for me means seeing learners demonstrate mastery via the APPLICATION of new knowledge.

Anything else, as Einstein suggests, is just information.
