My technical understanding of how technology should support student learning contributed to my previous district’s ranking among the “top ten” digital districts in the nation four of the past five years. Currently, I direct the instructional technology program and all of the technology infrastructure work for Omaha Public Schools as the Executive Director of Information Management Systems. Among my accomplishments are leading the first VBlock cloud data center installation in K-12 education and advising many schools across the country with their technology planning and integration. I was recently named 2014’s “20 to Watch” from NSBA for innovation and technology integration work. As a personal highlight, I worked with the Gates Foundation on iPD and inBloom national education projects, as well as presenting at the EdGrowth Conference in NYC TimesCenter and many other nationally known conferences.
