About

Hi, I'm one of the founders of Lessonface. I lead the overall strategy of Lessonface, and you may also encounter me doing customer service, shooting and editing video, and learning to play ukulele (that's me in the video on this page).

A long-time entrepreneur, my background includes founder or leadership roles at a few start up companies prior to Lessonface: CleanEdison, a green education company acquired by Kaplan; Celedu, a mobile app for teaching literacy in Hindi that started out of a class at the MIT Media Lab; BiblioBazaar, a publishing company that puts back into print books gone out of print; and when just out of college, NotSo Hostel, a youth hostel in Charleston, SC. As a kid I started companies that delivered fresh bread, baked delicious cheesecakes for friends and restaurants in my hometown of Aiken, SC, and sold my grandparents' vegetables at the farmer's market, among others. I have an MBA from MIT and a BA in History from the College of Charleston. 

I like building enterprises that are useful and create joy, and am so excited to see those elements in Lessonface.

If you would like to connect about Lessonface, music education, online learning, or other topics you believe would be of mutual interest, please send me a note below. 

I am a music student rather than teacher: 10 years of violin lessons, 2 of piano, 1 of flute, and a summer of fiddle, growing up.  

The spark that is created by a great teacher is a catalyst for self-discovery and development like no other. With digitization of learning has largely focused, to date, on humans interacting with computers, and I believe there's a need to make sure that the power of human expertise -- real live interaction for goal-setting, motivating, empathizing, as well as transfer of knowledge and expertise remains in the learning process as much as possible -- creating better outcomes for students and teachers. That's what we're doing here at Lessonface. So, no need to keep reading about me! Go find an amazing music teacher.
