What is it about Colorado SKIES Academy that attracted you to pursue working there?

Working with learners who will be our nation’s international and interstellar ambassadors is an amazing honor. It’s a privilege facilitating them to connect to our collective historic humanity, honor our journey, and feel empathy for those who came before us. Most importantly, I’m grateful to instill in them the responsibility to promote our essential civic virtues locally, abroad, and possibly on other planets.

What would learners be surprised to know about you?

I have designed cowboy costumes and clothing for Miley Cyrus, Toby Keith, Vince Vaughn, Temple Grandin, Pee-wee Herman, Macklemore, television’s most famous space explorer William Shatner, and many others.
