Hi, I'm Lars.

I build engaging, accessible, and collaborative digital learning environments.

about me

I create engaging digital experiences oriented towards learning and exploration. I am passionate about educational media production, critical pedagogy, and Universal Design for Learning.

Over the past decade, I have:

  • built dozens of graduate and undergraduate courses
  • designed professional development curricula
  • taught hundreds of college students how to create digital stories and interactive maps
  • earned a doctorate from the University of Minnesota (emphasis on technology + social justice)
  • coached instructors on creative ways to teach online
  • taught university courses
  • produced animations, educational videos, infographics, and multimedia open-source learning materials
  • created websites for research projects, a podcast, and small businesses
  • researched, developed, tested, and evaluated user interfaces for learning
  • completed a full-stack software engineering bootcamp
  • presented research at conferences and published in peer-reviewed journals

You can often find me picking up new skills through short courses or personal projects. When I'm not working, I love to hike, barbecue, read fiction, and play any kind of game.
