Design facinates me. Whether it's designing an ad for a new resident engagement program or designing an experience that a student in an eLearning classroom is going to have, design is a way to touch people's emotions and control how they feel about something. Design is a way to maximize learning in any environment, online or in-person. This is why I do what I do. To breed a positive emotion for the greater good of the world.
Design and produce creative, digital teaching, learning, and research solutions for organizations focused on delivering innovative education and training.
