media for education, development and social change
I produce audiovisual and interactive media that explains, educates and inspires.
Born in Bangkok, raised in Virginia, based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
I'm a Thai-American living in Tanzania. I make a variety of digital media with a focus on education, science and development. I love
football (of the soccer variety) and telling inspiring stories.
I'm currently in the planning stages of an interactive mass media English course, a
"MOOC" for the
bottom of the pyramid .
I also produce
podcasts, radio packages and
videos on science and development topics for the BBC,
The Guardian and many other organizations from the London Science Museum to the Taarifa mapping platform.
Previously I worked as Content Maestro for The Virtual School .
There I scoped an online course to cover the UK GCSE science & maths curriculum,
then worked with 30 digital media interns to take teachers' audio explanations and animate them into engaging learning videos.
I specialize in making content that explains complex topics simply. I regularly teach workshops on instructional design and educational media production.
I speak English, Kiswahili, Thai and a little bit of French and Mandarin.
