"I am a former college professor who left academia to work on open source privacy software and a sustainable tiny home project in Detroit. I've been a software engineer at Etsy in NYC, Amazon and Microsoft Research in Seattle, and have worked on electronics for quantum computing experiments around the world. I am motivated to help students, programmers at any level, and anyone curious and determined to learn about computer science, technology, and entrepreneurship to improve their lives.

My teaching approach is one of encouraging students to ask questions, having them work in groups of pair programming and mob programming. I will only lecture briefly, to present new ideas and to spark curiosity. I often present a task to be done and create an environment where students feel empowered to explore on their own.
