It has been said that it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert in anything. With 20 years experience under my belt, I count myself as both eLearning expert and enthusiast!
What started with summers coaching sailing turned into a lifelong passion for learning and performance improvement. I have spent most of my career immersed in the fascinating and evolving world of eLearning - building products and creating innovative solutions to organizational learning challenges.
I am a certified instructional designer with experience designing, developing and/or producing hundreds of online courses and learning resources. As Co-Founder and CEO of online learning company, Syntrio Inc., I oversaw the development and global delivery of a full suite of elearning products: content, enterprise learning management systems (LMS), content authoring, and an eLearning marketplace. I have a system-wide perspective on learning and development needs and eLearning industry offerings. Over two decades, I've worked through paradigm shifts in approaches to learning, advances in Internet and media technology, the realization of social and mobile learning, the rise of learning analytics, and the globalization of everything. Through it all, I've gained a deep understanding of digital learning: its role within the overall sphere of learning and performance management; the opportunities; challenges; and success factors.
With each new client and project, I gain knowledge, inspiration, and insights. I look forward to continuing to reach, grow, and share my expertise with valued clients and collaborators for many years to come.
