We would love to see you at CC Fest.
I have been working in the field of Educational Technology for the last 15 years. I have always enjoyed the intersection of art and technology and feel blessed to teach these skills at the K-12 level. I am skilled in the areas of 3D design, game design, photography, illustration, video production, keyframe animation, web design, and programming.
is a designer and developer building an ethical design practice grounded in accessibility, performance and aesthetics. He has twenty-years experience using digital tools to create across a wide-range of media. He works at the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability.
HELLO, I AM RUSHALI.

I also love goofing around with animation and photography sometimes!
uses algorithms and math to make art, music, and games. Inspired by physics and biology, his work is interactive: it detects the viewer and changes in response to their actions, creating an iterative feedback loop of play. Specializing in web experiences and immersive environments, he hopes that the viewer may find insight to the underlying forces that govern our lives. He exhibits and hosts workshops with organizations such as Gray Area, CODAME, UC Berkeley, and Stanford, as well as in online exhibitions such as The Wrong biennale.

has worked in educational technology at independent schools in New York City and the Bay Area for over 15 years. Prior to that, Ryan held various leadership roles at technology startups. He is currently the Director of Educational Technology at San Francisco Friends School.
Whether it is creating computer graphics models of underwater shipwrecks or using art and creativity to help students learn computational thinking, Professor Zoë Wood’s projects unite visual arts, mathematics and computer science. Via her NSF funded research projects she works with colleagues and students on robotics and computer graphics algorithms for shipwreck discovery and mapping which resulted in the discovery of a rare World War 2 airplane wreck. She works to increase the number of underrepresented students in her field through research projects, outreach activities and advising the student group Women Involved in Software and Hardware (W.I.S.H.). As co-founder of the interdisciplinary minor, Computing for the Interactive Arts, she believes in empowering students to realize their artistic visions via coding.
Richard Johnston began his teaching career in 1993 and has taught Mathematics at SBHS since 1998. Richard pioneered the Principles/Introduction to CS course in 2011. He envisioned a computer science program at SBHS that would open doorways into fields of study ranging from the arts to engineering. Richard assumed the role of Director of the CSA in 2016. His hope is to create opportunities for all students to learn to code because he believes every student needs to be able to read, write, do mathematics, and develop code in the modern world.
Radamés Ajna works as an instructor and developer within the interactive team at YR media. He teaches and develops interactive web applications in collaboration with young people, using computer science education as a form of civic empowerment. As an artist/creative technologist/educator, he's dedicated his practice to advocating for digital literacy and critical use of technology.

J.D. DeVaughn-Brown is a computer science teacher at Chadwick School in Palos Verdes. J.D. attended North Carolina State University where he graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science and did research in serious gaming. He then obtained his M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts. At UMass J.D. worked under Beverly Woolf, doing research in Intelligent Tutoring Systems. His focus was on developing an ITS designed for gifted and high-achieving students. J.D. has implemented project-based learning in a variety of settings from a university to summer camps to a K-12 school and is passionate about teaching students service through computer science.
is an educator, maker, engineer/computer scientist, code and data visualization enthusiast. She created and directed the maker program at Castilleja School in Palo Alto and is currently the Interim Director of the Innovation Lab (I-Lab) at Nueva School. She frequently facilitates workshops for educators in the realm of maker education and has been a senior fellow for Agency by Design Oakland. Above all else, she is unabashed in her love of coding, especially when it can make lights blink, create beautiful patterns, and/or do things one doesn't expect code to do.
works at Google by day, and runs HappyCoding.io in his free time. He's also active on the Processing and P5.js tags on Stack Overflow, as well as the Processing forum. If you've posted a question about Processing or P5.js on the internet, chances are you've talked to Kevin!
Nicholas "Shadrach" Smith is an avid beatmaker and an Instructional Technology Coach at a progressive independent school in Los Angeles. Before becoming an educator, he spent years working in every aspect of the music industry. From sound engineering, to working at a label, he has had his hands in several hit records that you are probably familiar with. Smith enjoys exploring creative methods of "making magic out of the mundane", including working with deliberate design constraints to create unique results and solutions. Smith stands behind #CSforALL and #ethicalCS while constantly discovering (and teaching) the many parallels between hip hop, technology, and education.
