About Devin

Firstly, please note that I am not looking to join an existing startup. I'm looking for a partner who is interested/ involved in edtech and can lead our sales and marketing efforts.

I have a pretty diverse background, but much of it comes back to work experience in the education and technology sectors. I am a software developer currently, and also teach online at Anne Arundel Community College. I have a Masters in Instructional Design, with a concentration in online learning. I worked several years at Laureate Education in Baltimore, building learning applications for online classrooms. I have firsthand e-learning experience as a developer, a student, and a teacher, and the idea for my startup comes out of that experience.

What I do not have is experience in sales, marketing, and business development. I am comfortable with public speaking and making presentations, but I don't have a sense of how to make a comprehensive strategy for getting my product to market. That is where a partner comes in.

The application called Teachable Moments is online and working. There is a sales website that is in progress you can view here:

The platform itself is developed and deployed. I am using it currently in my online classes and hope to get some other online teachers using it soon.
