Dr Wayne Buckhanan is a geek who likes people and teaching.
His geek credentials include a PhD in Electrical Engineering, graduate work in mathematics and particle accelerator physics, and 15 years as a professional web developer.
On the people side, he is a licensed Trainer of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, the 4MAT instructional design methodologies, and the ChangeWorks suite of coaching tools. For “fun” he studies adult developmental models, personality dynamics, and writes about topics such as the human side of social media and how to reach your goals.
Beyond his current role as Computer Science professor in Napa Valley, California, he started a high school from scratch, developed his own model of learning, and delivered an invited TEDx talk on the future of education.
He formed his first company, Mercs, in 1997. Starting as a pure technical support company with a $1,000 loan and a laptop, today Mercs merges the technical with the human side of business and works with international TV personalities, published authors, professional musicians, real estate investors, and many other entrepreneurs and small business owners.
Wayne has worked with everyone from teens to retirees, and finds self-motivated learners, like entrepreneurs and professionals, to be the most fun to work with. This is why he continues to develop hybrid online-offline courses to deliver transformative learning experiences.
