I love teaching and learning, which is why strive to be a change agent in education. I apply design thinking to help redefine everything from curricula to tech implementation.
My academic career focus has always been grounded in cognitive and developmental psychology studies. Research in this field supports my skills as an educator and a UX designer.
It starts with a constant desire to tackle new problems. I want to design products that leverage technology to make life better. It's as simple as that, and I'm just getting started.
Now why is humility in the face of the mystery of existence so important? Why is it that the search, and not the answers, is so significant? Because, if you focus your minds and hearts on the questions, respect the complexity of your experience, and do not grasp at the half truths, this true reverence for your own life will allow you to have reverence for the lives of other people, too. You will have the power of empathy.Frank A. Moretti (former Director, Columbia University's Center for New Media Teaching and Learning)
Oppressive language does more than represent violence; it is violence; does more than represent the limits of knowledge; it limits knowledge.Toni Morrison (Nobel Prize in Literature)
P'atrás, ni pa' coger impulso.Demetrio Maldonado (my grandfather)
