About Me

Who I am

Hello There! I am a creator that strives to merge modern web and instructional design principles to develop engaging, interactive, accessible, and FUN tools for educational and training purposes. From Healthcare Administration programs to Twitch Inc., my clients receive a service that exceeds demand and solidifies their status as leading providers of online education. Being student focused, I architect courseware, instructional systems, and web content that best serve the needs of my users and students.

Blackboard Learn

The following samples were taken from courses built using a unique design framework that I developed for Blackboard Learn. These are HTML copies/samples of the actual courses, so tools reliant on the Blackboard LMS back-end are non-functional. As samples, these courses are not shown in their complete forms, and some materials necessary for the completion of the topics displayed have been removed.

Interactive Graphics

These graphics can be composed in Adobe Illustrator, and brought to life with JavaScript and CSS. This ease of production makes them strongly suited for web-applications, high-volume production environments, and for creating interactive infographics. Better yet, the text in these graphics is stored as text so as to more easily meet accessibility standards in text-heavy imagery.

Adobe Captivate

Below are two examples of materials created using Adobe Captivate, a rapid eLearning development software. The Ethical Decisions example utilizes Captivate's responsive tools, whereas the SunTrust example relies on a bit of additional JavaScript for scaling purposes.
