Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit and peruse through my online portfolio. If you have any comments, feedback, questions, or contract opportunities, you may contact me via the Contact page on this website or via LinkedIn.
This online portfolio contains a brief professional bio and a very small sampling of my projects; each of which demonstrate my capabilities and competencies. Additional samples are available upon request.
During the years I managed and coordinated computer training programs and facilitated corporate and higher education computer technology courses, I gained an appreciation for quality training. My interest grew towards promoting effective education, improving human performance systems in business, increasing awareness about the value of efficient performance systems, professional development, and the constructive application of skills and knowledge in the workforce.
In December 2006, I obtained a Master´s degree in Instructional Systems Design with a Major in Online Distance Learning from Florida State University. The Master´s program in Instructional Design (ID) afforded me the opportunity to gain the theoretical and product knowledge to set the foundation for my career in Instructional Systems Design, and complements my experience in computer technology education.
Since 2007, I have worked as a Learning Consultant and completed projects for fortune 500 companies in the banking, airline transportation, software, and insurance industries. I enjoy working in challenging contract projects where I work independently or interdependently, leading projects, contributing and sharing ideas, designing and/or developing instructional solutions for educational institutions and corporate businesses.
Outside of projects, I'm either enhancing my skills in art, design, and learning technologies, walking the beautiful trails in my neighborhood, practicing yoga, solving a left-brain right-brain puzzle, watching foreign films, or decorating cakes and baking sweets for family and friends. Currently, in addition to projects, I'm learning to bake bread and completing an A.S. degree in Graphic Design. By the end of spring 2015, I'll have one more tool to add to my Instructional Design tool set. After that, it's just a matter of finding the time to redesign this site. Namaste.
