Orion Couling is the award-winning Founder and Executive Director of EDGE of Orion, an Illinois NFP. He is a specialist in project-based learning and carries 20 years of adventure based teaching experience. He created the Constellation Project, a program that celebrates inclusion and neuro-diverse participation. With over 100 directing credits in professional and youth theatre to his name, he remains one of the foremost experts in dynamic educational theatre. His “edu-tainment” style is known to bring levity and inspiration to classrooms and audiences. Orion is also a stage combat instructor, stunt coordinator and a licensed Maritime Captain. When not leading the “inclusion revolution,” you’ll find him playing with his Irish Folk rock band “Finger on the Trigger,” leading ghost tours, or by the water.
