Hi -I oversee the technical capabilities of our platform here at OpenLearning. I believe in continuously improving our technology to reflect that of our educational learning philosophy. If and when not at our HQ you are likely to bump into me at a local Cafe, jogging around town listening to a podcast, zenned out as a yogi, snowboarding or catching up with friends and family.
