Founder at Experience Institute
Public Relations and Communications | Greater Chicago Area, US
Two years ago, I became curious about learning practical ways to improve the world. After researching business schools, I decided my options were either too expensive or less than what I was looking for, so I created my own format of 12 experiences in 12 months centered around design, business, and social change. Over the course of one year, I traveled around several states and countries and worked with some of the best and brightest.
These mini-apprenticeships have given me a deeper understanding of the theory behind good business and social change, while also teaching me through practical experience the adaptability necessary to make things work in our new economy. I believe this type of experience-based education provides an invaluable learning experience, costs far less than current models, and can equip individuals to face today’s problems with an inventive spirit. Now, I'm building bridges to great individuals, companies, and organizations to create a new type of Higher Education based on experience.
