Over twenty years’ experience in the information technology and education disciplines has allowed me to develop a strong understanding of information management, how information is comprehended and the best way to deliver information. Building and conducting technology related courses has strengthened the communication proficiencies that I have cultivated in tandem with my information technology skills. Gaining a strong understanding of and using instructional design skills has added to my course creation and course material development skills demonstrating stronger and improved courses. Combining fine art and graphic design has allowed me to feed my creative side and permitted me to marry my analytical and creative skills to build solid foundations creating exceptional projects. It is my goal to advance to a project management position that allows me to continue the collaboration I've created using my information technology and graphic design skills in new and creative ways to educate, enlighten and empower my team and myself.
