What I Do:
Thanks for visiting. I’m an assistant professor with University of Wisconsin Extension in Douglas County, Wisconsin. I provide community based education in the areas of economic, community, and organizational development. I bring experience from the private sector managing an international training department and instructional design for multiple Fortune 500 companies. In addition, I have considerable experience in public sector and non-profit economic, workforce, and community development.
I hold a Masters and a Doctoral degree in training and performance improvement. In addition, I am involved in ISPI, ATD (formerly ASTD), and eLearning Guild – nationally and locally, and engage with these groups and members actively online. Drop me an email or tweet, always glad to reply.

One of the reasons I maintain an active membership in ISPI, is that they bring some sanity to the trendy approach that some other entities have taken. With that said, when I develop asynchronous learning, I use the following tools:
When time permits, and the work does not present a conflict of interest, I do perform contractual freelance work. These services include:
I am also experienced in post-secondary classroom instruction. I have served as adjunct faculty in Business, Technology, and Arts & Letters departments.
