I am currently open to full-time or contract positions as an instructional designer, developer, trainer, or virtually any aspect of adult education. I most recently served my fellow vets at the Department of Veterans Affairs, but have decided that the adult-learning community is where my heart and talents lie. Before that, I worked as a volunteer for the KeelWorks Foundation as Manager of Instructional Design & Development.
I am an award-winning expert in the field of Instructional Design & Delivery, with over 25 years of Adult Training experience. Materials I've developed include Instructor-Led Training (ILT), E-Learning, Blended Learning, Job Aids, OJT & Self-Paced. I am skilled in Lectora, Captivate, Snag-it, ToolBook, Articulate, & MS Office. I am also experienced in all phases of training program management & curriculum management.

What can a seasoned Instructional Designer/Trainer bring to your organization? My six+ years of classroom podium time informs my Instructional Design skills to ensure the development of high-quality training materials. Using the ADDIE ISD model, I can delve into subjects I know nothing about & dig out everything I need to meet the precise learning needs of my customers. I have created content in the fields of electronics, avionics equipment, telecommunications, customer service, public utilities, and a variety of soft skills. I can be very detail oriented for lengthy programs, yet flexible enough to satisfy critical needs with a simple job aid.
With the number of training-needs assessments and task analyses I've completed, I'm a highly competent performance consultant, able to identify both training & non-training-related performance issues, & then tactfully provide in-depth feedback to my customers.
Also, via my ISD experience, I am also a skilled technical writer. I have both the skill and the formal training to write in any style necessary. I am also recognized as the go-to-guy for editing/proofing the work of others.
