I am an Instructional Designer that creates learning experiences to help people get better at their jobs.

WHAT DO YOU SAY...
YOU DO HERE?

I build things

You won’t find a hammer, but you will find adult learning theory, ADDIE, SAM, Adobe Creative Cloud, TechSmith Camtasia, and Articulate 360 in my toolbox. There’s teamwork, a sense of humor, and curiosity in there too!

I make relevant learning experiences

Training made to check a box is boring and wasteful. Working with a team of subject matter experts (SMEs) helps me to uncover learners’ needs to develop meaningful and engaging training experiences. Learners need insightful experiences that help them improve their job performance.  I make learning easy and memorable for the learner.

It’s magic!

Nah, not really. There isn’t any magic or secret sauce. Instructional Design is simply finding the best way to connect with learners whether that’s in the classroom, in a virtual environment, or via eLearning. I build all kinds of learning, but my favorite learning experiences are where technology and learning meet.
