As a former teacher and a father of three children, I understand what is needed to get children and students to engage. It's the thrill of seeing a child "buy in" to learning that drives me and makes me stand apart from others. My goal is to help others find a way to achieve their goals. I have a rich background in education as well as 10 years experience working in corporate legal, specifically involved in legal research and e-discovery.
