I work on multiple projects, on behalf of the U.S. government, to bring high quality arts experience to young people in the U.S. Design thinking -- knowledge of prototyping and human interaction design -- can be of great service in the volatile public-education world. We have barely scratched the surface on how the design-community can partner with the education community to improve the quality and nature of youth-learning.

Currently, Education Director, National Endowment for the Arts. Past experience: Director, k12 Programs, American Academy for Liberal Education. Founding faculty, The Oxbow School, Napa, CA. PhD, philosophy, Vanderbilt University.
