I’m an award-winning e-Learning & interactive multimedia developer, instructional designer, and training consultant with more than 15 years of experience. Prior to that, I spent an additional 5 years doing instructional design for instructor-led training, and I was delighted when I finally found a way to marry my skills in that field with my love of all things computers, gaming, and coding – e-learning. These days, I have the honor of designing, building, and implementing some of the most awesome e-learning programs for the biggest companies and best clients in the world! And though I’m personally based out of Atlanta, GA, I often travel all over the country to work on-site with clients. Also, I can be easily bribed with cookies … or sour cream streusel cake…
Some learned through mentorship and school, some through experience or trial and error. But all time-tested and proven.
Whenever I meet someone new and the conversation turns to, “What do you do for a living?” I get to tell one of my favorite stories. So I figured it’d be good to write it out here, where you can read it anytime. Sadly, an audiobook version narrated by James Earl Jones is probably not in the cards. So if you want to find out the story, you’ve just gotta scroll down.
The Early Years
College (and more college)
eLearning and Instructional Design
Now, I’m an e-learning and performance improvement consultant, helping organizations build award-winning interactive e-learning systems. I also do education consulting through The Abreon Group and contract e-learning development – both independently. I also love sharing my knowledge and ideas through blogs, webinars, and speaking at a lot of industry conferences throughout the year, so look for me on the docket at places like the Lectora User Conference, Learning Solutions, DevLearn, ATD TechKnowledge, and more. Finally, do a lot of MMORPG beta testing in my down time, and I love gaming, music, and storytelling of all sorts. I’m always looking for ways to bring those things into my e-learning and training, too!
I can help!
I'm currently available for freelance opportunities and contract work.
