EIR and Operating Partner

He is the co-founder and former CEO of LearnZillion, a curriculum company that provides the highest quality curriculum in a digital-first format.

That focus animated his work as principal and Chief Academic Officer at E.L. Haynes Public Charter School in Washington, D.C., as Assistant Principal of St. Joseph’s School in Harlem, and as a teacher in North Carolina, New York, and Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
