This site has been up since early in 2011, when I decided I needed a site to post “stuff” that might be of interest (or not) as I explored online learning and creative endeavours.
By day, I teach middle school in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. I’m a long-standing advocate for the use of technology in education, a passionate believer in the importance of learning and self-direction, a practicing photographer, and a dad.
