I am a recient graduate of Xavier University with a degree in Music Education and a minor in mathematics. I currently serve as Assistant Marching Band Director at New Albany High School in Ohio and sub/tutor when not there. I am the second child in a family of six and I am interested in Math, Music, Physics, and life!
Education and learning. Seeing the world not as compartmentalized subjects, but as one interconnected, interdependent world. Connecting seemingly different subjects and people. Misperceptions.
We are all one world. Interconnected, interdependent, spiderwebed in a network of thoughts, feelings, and actions. There is not one thing that can be defined as isolated. People, environments, subjects of study, or even ideas: we are all one world.
Leadership innovations. Teaching leadership to youth through Boy Scouts and Marching Band.
Ukulele. Ocarina. Python. Any Final Fantasy game.
I was first exposed to TED my freshman year in college (2009) when the freshman music major seminar watched "Music and Passion" by Benjamin Zander. Ever since that video I have been hooked: watching talk after talk and sharing the videos to just the people who I think would like the talks as well. The passion I have for TED and TEDx pinnacled January of 2012 when I became one of the four core organizers of the very first TEDxXavierUniversity.
