My Skills

If it's a platform that can teach or inspire, I'll learn it and hack it until your instructional dreams come true. I'm a data-driven designer with over a decade of experience building innovative and inspiring educational tools, lessons, and trainings. I built my first interactive training deck in HyperCard in 1996, and have been pushing boundaries ever since. 

I make learning beautiful, fun, simple, engaging, and accessible. I have worked for big names like Apple, Instructure, and Best Buy, several universities, and have transformed instruction in dozens of K12 schools. 

I'm not skilled in Bonsai. I've killed 4, including one Lego bonsai. Don't hire me to look after your Bonsai. 🌳
