I curate multi-dimensional learning experiences in partnership with businesses that aspire to community outreach for young children to supplement their academic learning. Children engage and collaborate in my workshops and have fun with learning as the by-product.


I work with Parents so they can follow-through at home on the learning outcomes that the children take home with.

Environmental Advocacy

I advocate the Circular Economy where the mindset changes from take-make-waste to using resources as an economic opportunity to reset especially in a post pandemic world.
