Lead Instructional Designer
Pronouns: He | Him | His
“I am a white man, a learner, an educator, a Midwesterner, and a Southerner. I’m a brother and a son. I am an aspiring accomplice in racial and social justice who strives to leverage my privilege in the service of those things. I commit to #LiveInclusively by listening instead of talking, learning as much as teaching, leading with intention, and making space for all.”
