I head up ForAllSystems, a software company based in Chicago. We have been developing assessment technology for K-12 classrooms for the last 12 years. We support two closely related products, ForAllRubrics and ForAllBadges. We are enthusiastic supporters of Mozilla's work on Open Badges. My Ph.D. is in Computer Science from SUNY Stony Brook and I was on the faculty at DePaul before I caught the entrepreneurial bug. My research was in mathematical foundations of programming language design but I mostly taught more practical courses on compiler implementation and database design/implementation. I have two young daughters and I do my best to share with them my love for math, science, technology and all things geeky.
