I'm passionate about big, audacious ideas which I attribute to my eclectic career path that includes stints as a chemist, hydrogeologist, computer programmer, writer, and manager. Of course I'm a TEDster. I hold degrees in physics, entrepreneurship and industrial engineering but my current passion is synthetic biology. In my spare time, I enjoy organizing TEDx events and delving into quirky technology projects with my 10 year old son.

People don't experience the world as separate subjects. So why do schools insist on presenting information as such? Technology is changing our world. So why are mobile devices banned in 70% of U.S. schools? Humans are hard-wired to learn. So why do we need people with degrees in education to teach us? REIMAGINE LEARNING BY EMBRACING HUMAN POTENTIAL.
