Native of NYC living in Virginia Beach VA currently. Active in UN and NGO community as journalist and pioneer of innovations in journalism. Schooled at NY's School of Visual Arts and Pace University. I am seeking synergy with collaborators who will want to drive education reform with entrepreneurial invention rather than with theory negotiated though established channels. I have spent many years finding out that education reform will not happen no matter how strong the theory is. It must be driven from the outside by something which racially departs and delivers extraordinary value everyone will choose over the existing models. I have invented informatics upon which to base a new kind of communication and study and need help putting it into action in a place where it can't be ignored.

An idea worth spreading
One idea is that knowledge of the intellectual growth dynamic known as "neuroplasticity" means that education as we know it is actually dysfunctional in significant regards and therefore education reform should cease arguing that a new model is merely "better" or "more effective". Indeed the old model is institutionalized dysfunction and no one will choose dysfunction when a new model corrects that dysfunction. The model I am pioneering under the banner of UNDERSTANDING Inc. does this and much more.
