Director of Education


Los Angeles, CA


Our rapidly evolving society requires students to develop new 21st century skills to be
successful for the future of work. Research shows that while demand is high, supply is low –
and underserved students are disproportionately not prepared for the future of work. GENESIS
sets out to solve this problem.
Founded in 2013, GENESIS is a hands-on, art museum-based STEAM education platform
focused on inspiring and fostering critical 21st century skills in underserved communities.
GENESIS offers a variety of programs to bring K-12 youth to its state-of-the-art innovation labs,
designed from the ground up in art museums around North America, to facilitate engagement
with its high-impact STEAM curriculum. GENESIS provides STEAM (Science, Technology,

Engineering, Art and Mathematics) education with hands-on experiences that combine project-
based learning and design thinking, giving underserved students opportunities to apply their skills to real life challenges. In 2020 GENESIS launched a virtual education platform, the GENESIS Innovation Campus, in response to the new significance of online learning. It is anticipated that virtual learning will
remain a critical element in all educational curriculums in the future, and GENESIS is at the
forefront of meeting this need. To learn more about GENESIS STEAM, please visit To learn more about the GENESIS Innovation Campus, visit
