I am the founder of Advanced Authoring, a company dedicated to making learning more interactive and engaging, and sometimes even portable.
I have spent the last nine years as an Instructional Designer and Technology Specialist for Miami University’s Advanced Learning Technologies unit. I was responsible for helping faculty and teaching staff include learning objects into their courses. I have spent the last fourteen years helping faculty develop both personal and distance learning websites, interactive media, and advanced presentations technology. From my innovative work at Miami, I have been recognized by Adobe Systems as a worldwide Higher Education Leader.
Before joining the team at Miami, I worked as an Internet Strategist for Macromedia, Inc. I created and managed Macromedia’s Innovation Award program which highlighted web developer’s talents and ground-breaking use of rich media in the education and e-Learning fields.
I am a certified Macromedia Flash Designer and hold a B.S. in Broadcasting from Northern Arizona University and a M.Ed. in Educational Media and Computers from Arizona State University.
