The reason I love TEACHING is that I love learning.

My work as an educator, mentor, coach and facilitator wavers between online and offline worlds, traditional and non-traditional education, large groups and one-on-one consultations. I like being a bridge between different worlds, particularly teaching design to non-designers, or storytelling to those who have never blogged before. I teach in a way that skills can be applied beyond the project at hand, and become life skills. I'm a life-long learner and I also love sharing resources.
