Growing up in North Philadelphia I never forgot the impact that active and passive mentors in my community had on my development and my love of art and history. Most of my personal work and a good deal of my professional life involved education in some way or the other. Over the past few years, I’ve worked on programs that would directly target and benefit youth in underserved communities starting with my own in North Philadelphia. It’s an obsession of mine to create awareness of the opportunities in advertising and technology to young men and women of color. I’ve worked with some amazing and talented people over the years and look forward to forging new partnerships in the future with this goal in mind.
Breaking the Code Culture & Cognition Pre-Summit Workshop was developed along with a group of talented artists, educators, and creative thinkers. The Google Education Pennsylvania Summit will feature a ground-breaking pre-summit workshop highlighting Culture & Cognition: strategies to unravel how children receive, process and transform information creatively, using technology. Educators will share in thought-provoking and very practical exchanges designed to increase their impact when teaching in front of K-12 urban classrooms.
