I am distance learning consultant and information technology specialist with Cornell Cooperative Extension. My current areas of work include promoting social media for civic engagement and social learning, digital storytelling and documentary, and exploring appropriate information tools and technologies for agricultural extension and community development. I am actively involved in developing and teaching online classes for digital literacy. I can also be found working with youth, on select occasions, around issues of digital media production and storytelling.
I also advise not-for-profits working in Nicaragua who are actively engaged in the use of information technology for community development. Currently I am working to create a peer learning network that will link practitioners and professionals working in the area of smallholder agriculture and sustainable community development in Nicaragua and the United States. I also co-lead an annual learning exchange to Nicaragua in January.
