Personal Details and information
An experienced instructional systems designer, specialist, and educator, through various instructional design models and concepts, produced and employed hundreds of hours of instruction. In 2005 I began my career as a Journeyman Instructor for the United States Navy, which led to a MTS (Master Training Specialist) certification and a Bachelor of Science in Education Development from Southern Illinois University. I then devoted research and efforts towards adult learning; bridging the various training gaps, mainly focusing on blended learning methods (mixture of e-Learning and traditional learning). Once I gained ample experience in the field of adult learning I then enrolled at University of Connecticut to tweak my skills in the areas of new literacies for education, earning a Master of Art in Education, now developing courseware for the United States Coast Guard Academy through United Research Services (URS).Download My CV
