I’ve always said I became an instructional designer because I’m happiest whenever I get to learn something new, and it doesn’t really matter much what that is (“Fuel injection systems? Sure- let’s learn about fuel injection!”)
I’m an independent consultant and instructional designer with more than 15 years of experience creating highly interactive e-learning experiences for clients from Fortune 500 companies and technology startups to grant-funded research initiatives.
I’ve got a degree in Instructional Systems Technology, and whole lot of background in things like UX design, game-based learning and behavior change.
I’ve been an adjunct faculty member in the Visualization Department at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where I created and taught courses in project management, instructional design, and cognitive psychology.
I like learning.
