Classbento CTO,  teacher


I'm the CTO (Chief Technology Officer) at Classbento, and a proud resident of Sydney, Australia. I'm hugely passionate about teaching, learning, and how technology can help us to achieve things here that were previously impossible, and to connect people and and the arts like never before.

I believe that recreational learning can become a hugely popular entertainment option. Instead of just passively watching others having the fun on screen or on stage, recreational learning puts the freedom to express, to shape our worlds, in our hands. The rockstars of the future won't just be performers; they'll be teachers too.

I'm always open to feedback, whether it's something boring like a website problem, or a radical new idea. Please get in touch!
