CEO & President
I have been an executive leader for innovative teams at education technology organizations over the last two decades, including PowerSchool, Apple, Pearson, Frontline, and most recently, GoReact. Prior to that, I studied, taught, and researched humanities at BYU, Cornell, and Princeton. I uniquely combine my academic experience with a track record of success in growing education businesses.
I was attracted by AOEU’s genuine passion for serving art education at every level. I noticed something else, though. It’s been my privilege for many years to help improve the availability and quality of educational opportunities in the U.S. and globally. Education is in flux right now. Lots of changes are imminent. I recognized that, here at AOEU, we have a truly innovative university model that is capable of sustaining better quality and more affordable learning opportunities amidst this change.
