My job title is Senior Instructor. I teach technical seminars and Developer Academies.
How does your role help transform lives?
As a front-line instructor, I teach people skills that they need in their daily jobs. In the case of Developer Academies, I often completely change the direction of a student's working life by helping them move into a programming position.
Which core value do you relate to the most, and why?
Optimism while Running Towards the Snake. The belief that things we need are possible to attain with some hard work, a little humor, some good food, some grit when things get hard, friends, and compassion for those on this journey with you.
What's your favorite quote?
“You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.” — Christopher Robin

I started teaching people how to program the same year Sony introduced the Walkman!
