Steve McCrea
Trained as a bureaucrat (master's degree in public administration), Steve knows much about the power of the system to contort thinking.  By encouraging himself to "own" the organization that he was part of, he brings in a range of ideas that appear to be "outside the box" -- but are really just inside a larger box.  He attended several of Dr. Deming's seminars in 1992 and compiled a quote book of Dr. Deming's key quotes with the aim of driving more readers to Out of the Crisis.   Based in Fort Lauderdale, Steve is available for Skype chats and presentations.

A free download of the Deming quotes is available at Scribd.com (search "Deming quotes")
 
The following profile appears in a Broward College document:  
Steve began using videos and computers in class in 1997 to implement "many ways of teaching" as Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences theory suggests. Steve shares his method using audio CDs and YouTube videos to help students who dislike taking notes. He is currently researching the use of voice recognition technology for improving writing in teenagers as part of a doctorate program in distance learning and instructional technologies.
