Professional Trainer and E-learning Developer

I am an Elearning Developer who is a husband, father, martial artist and someone who has a borderline unhealthy fascination with tech.

I have about 20 years experience in education and training. I started as a public school teacher before going back to school to peruse a Master degree in Instructional Design. Since that time I have been a stand up trainer traveling the country teaching analytical software to various law enforcement agencies and on military bases. I also have spent a great deal of time developing e-learning and instructor lead training for private companies such as Lockheed Martin and the Harris Corporation. But I also have done contract work for a variety of State and Federal agencies such as the Office of Inspector General for the Postal Service.

I have delivered thousands of hours or training and presentations and developed more computer based training than I can remember. I have used everything from Photoshop to Final Cut Pro, Captivate to SharePoint and everything in between.
