I am an instructional designer driven by a desire to create high quality educational experiences that are engaging, innovative, and applicable. I have been in education for over a decade and have dual Master’s degrees in the Art of Teaching and in Instructional Design. This amount of experience and education allows the courses I develop to have a rock solid pedagogical core enhanced with purposeful design elements that embrace simplicity and reflect excellence. A strength that I bring to the table is my insatiable appetite for problem-solving which fuels my personal commitment to life-long learning. It is this drive that propels me to continue creating the kind of online courses that push the boundaries of technology as not just a substitute for traditional learning but a catalyst to redefine what is possible. I embed multimedia elements to engage the learner and therefore increase their participation in the course and retention of the material learned. When I am not designing instruction, I spend time with my wife and four daughters, which keeps me very busy.
