I'm a designer of many things and I specialize in:
- Instructional Design
- Web Design
What I Work On
I work on a lot of projects during my workday and during my free time. These are some of what I work on during my day.
- DaVita - I'm a Senior Instructional Designer in the IT department at DaVita full-time. This fills up most of my day.
- WPHubSite - I saw a huge gap in cost and simplicity when it came to WordPress and HubSpot. That started my journey in creating a platform that is simple enough for slightly tech-able people to truly take advantage of the power that HubSpot has when combined with WordPress and for a lot less money than the HubSpot CMS costs.
- Exprance - I build websites and some digital marketing for clients all around the globe. You'll also find many blog posts that help small business owners market their business online.
- WPmaintain - WordPress is an awesome platform for websites but it needs to be maintained and secured. This service helps owners of WordPress website by taking the entire worry of WordPress off their shoulders.
- Loclweb - I set up a WaaS (WordPress or Website as a Service) using WordPress to help local small businesses have a professional yet affordable website and marketing. This service is all inclusive including hosting, maintenance, and weekly reports.
As you can see I have a lot of projects going on which fill up my evenings and weekends. If you'd like to talk to me about any of my projects or work with me, just let me know! You can also head to any of the projects above to learn more about them and even purchase one.
Technology + Design Blog
I haven't blogged in a while on here. That's because I've been busy blogging about WordPress and on other projects. You can still read my blog posts about learning in the workplace, Instructional Design, and other musings from the past.
You never know, I could publish a new blog post at any time here also. It's not impossible.
My favorite books are the fun books and I just finished another good one. I’m not an expert at writing book reviews so these might just be more of what I enjoyed about the book and some of what I didn’t enjoy (not that there ever is anything I don’t enjoy). The last book was…
I just recently finished reading a business book in my alternating schedule of fun and business reading. This one was The E-Myth Revisited (and on Amazon) which overall was a worthwhile read. There were a few areas where the book veered a bit from reality. And, as the author might put it, the reality is…
Nearly two years ago I drastically changed my relationship with books. Prior to about February 2018 I read very few books in my life. I’d be lucky if I averaged about 2 a year. I read the usual books such as Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit (who hasn’t!?) but beyond that, I was…
