Abram Gornik hails from the Big Island of Hawaii, and from a very diverse educational background. Raised in a family that runs both a construction enterprise and a successful educational non-profit, he has participated in both endeavors from a young age first as student and apprentice, and then as instructor. Abram has a wealth of experience in service learning, community building, sports, carpentry, wilderness adventures, and youth programs of all kinds. His deep background in music and technology and his infectious love of learning allow him to share equally with students of all ages. A cancer survivor from the age of 9, Abram’s unique life journey has brought him a depth of understanding and openness which he brings to his work in carpentry, building, videography, musical composition, or anything requiring a computer interface. Abram has completed four summer sessions at Newton’s Attic.
