About the Instructor
Morgan is a local, born and raised in Oakland, CA, who loves meeting new people. Growing up in the tech generation gives Morgan an intuitive understanding of computers and a passion for sharing his knowledge. “When someone walks away from a consulting session, smiling because — not only are their problems solved, but they now know how to solve them in the future — that’s when you know you’ve done something right.”
As Morgan grew up in the Bay Area, he was instilled with a strong sense of the value of community, seeing positive connections made and information being passed as goals worth living by. He was further influenced creatively by both his parents, and his high school, Oakland School for the Arts, (a local charter school devoted to the arts.) O.S.A. was also a very new school at the point Morgan joined, and because of it’s unique system, it was a very rocky environment. After these early experiences, dealing with stress and rapidly changing situations has become as easy as breathing to Morgan.
After high school, Morgan chose to find his own path and soon stumbled upon Tech Liminal. The community-oriented, new and bold atmosphere drew him in. Morgan grew with Tech Liminal, shifting jobs and roles as the company needed. Through it all, he has retained his love of people and his focus on communal growth. Morgan shares Anca’s dream of a more tech oriented world, where the internet isn’t strange or mysterious, but a wonderful place to conduct your business and a tool to help you build your dreams.
