Hey. My name is Tony.
I am an educator that is passionate about building things that allow students to learn by creating. I'm interested in designing programs and products that empower students and community members to realize their untapped creative potential through maker and constructionist education.
I have worked in a variety of areas in education and technology—K-12 STEM/CS education, ed tech smart toys, out-of-school learning, digital literacy, educational kit design, and post-secondary access.
Currently, I'm helping launch the development of a new makerspace at MIND+HAND—a community non-profit on the southwest side of Chicago. Additionally, I am working as a product design consultant for MESH, a Sony Innovation Fund backed ed-tech company that makes an IoT learning platform for K-12 education.
