Living & learning in a digitally connected world!

    ~ Welcome to my personal website ~


Who am I?
A husband, a parent…
An educator, a student…
A thinker, a dreamer…
An agent of change.

I have a number of learning spaces where I chronicle who I am and what I do as an educator. My Pair-a-Dimes for Your Thoughts has a philosophical bent to it: my thoughts on education, learning and technology.

Podcasting Pair-a-Dimes is where I share podcasts as an extension to my Pair-a-Dimes blog.

My Daily-Ink is a (not-so) daily journal as well as things that don’t make it onto my blog, or haven’t gotten there yet. It includes quotes from other bloggers with my comments, or comments I’ve made elsewhere.

On this site, you can find links and references to my forays into the world of Web2.0, some of my Presentations, and Student Leadership resources based on my University of Oregon Masters paper, and one of my latests projects, Twitter EDU, an ebook on how to get started on Twitter.

Find out more on ‘About Me’, on LinkedIn, on Google+, or see my ‘CV’.

Feel free to Contact Me or explore resources in the links above.

A little more about me:

I’m married (to a teacher) and have two daughters. In 2009 we left the bubble-wrapped suburbs of Vancouver, Canada and spent two years living in Dalian, China.

Currently, I’m an educator (Principal) with Learning Innovations Network Coquitlam (LINC) for School District #43 ~ Coquitlam, BC, Canada. My primary responsibilities are to Coquitlam Open Learning, our innovative blended learning Inquiry Hub Secondary School, and Suwa’lkh, an alternate school with a name that means ‘New Beginnings’ in the Hul’qumi’num language.

I would like to acknowledge that I live, work, and play on core territory of the Kwikwetlem First Nations people which lies within the shared Traditional Territories of the Tsleil- Waututh, Katzie, Musqueam, Squamish and Sto’:lo Nations.
