Hi, I'm CEO and one of the founders of Lessonface. 2nd from left in the photo from NAMM 2016.
A long-time entrepreneur, my background includes operations/product/founder roles at CleanEdison, a green education company acquired by Kaplan; Celedu, a mobile app for teaching literacy in Hindi using NFC 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 using print on demand; and when just out of college, NotSo Hostel, a youth hostel in Charleston, SC, still thriving.
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. Recently I've been taking mandolin lessons from Alan Epstein, who I absolutely recommend.
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.
