Personal

"I find it fascinating to learn about the unique culture and values of the organizations we work with, then helping those organizations extend those attributes to everything from solution design to look & feel to the words being used."

Personal

"I like stirring things up a bit - trying new approaches, playing with technology tools, and connecting with the e-learning community. Above all, I love collaborating with clients to create learning programs that don't bore learners to death and actually teach something. After all, e-learning always boils down to the people and not the technology."

Personal 

"This is a great time to work in learning. Business leaders have never needed their organizations to develop new capabilities so urgently. Employees have never before had to learn so much so fast. And we in learning have never had so broad an array of tools at our disposal. Nevertheless, wehn you metnion "corporate training" business leaders all too often frown. It's wonderful to have the opportunity to square the circle and provide learning solutions that ensure alignment, drive business results, and engage learners."
