Multimedia Developer

I've been teaching software and have been in the e-learning business for over 10 years. I've written tutorials and books about learning various programming languages and software.

I have developed numerous mobile applications on iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire TV, and Nook Tablet platforms both for myself and for corporations.

When I'm not creating e-learning multimedia, I also write/illustrate children's books and design user interfaces for learning management systems.

I love teaching beginners and intermediate software users alike.
