About Me

Merve is responsible for the overall outreach strategy for Common Sense Education and oversees a team that works directly with school leadership to impact school communities using technology for learning. Collaborating with school networks, state-level organizations, and community leaders, Merve is committed to fostering a whole-community approach to digital teaching and establishing supportive learning spaces for children and families to thrive in a world with media and technology.

Merve has over 17 years of experience driving education technology initiatives across school programs and building educator confidence through professional development and strategic implementation. Merve continues to keynote education-based events across the United States and delivers professional development to school networks, districts, and major conferences. He sits on a number of steering committees addressing school climate and state policy initiatives within his local counties and is currently a Board level contributor for CUE SF (Computer Using Educators San Francisco).

Merve holds a BA in psychology and sociology from the University of San Francisco and is often behind a camera snapping pictures of his wife and two daughters dancing around the Bay Area.
