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.
  • 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.
  • App Marketing Video - At DaVita I've created many quick videos for the release of updates to software and even new software, that's what I do here. These videos are usually 2-4 minutes and cover the new changes in a short marketing video that doesn't go into great detail but covers the main changes to make it more approachable for employees.

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.

My Personal & Learning Blog Posts

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.

First post of 2014 and I’m feeling motivated to keep going with every two weeks a new post #ResolutionNow*. I’ve made that my goal for the past seven or eight months and it’s worked out close to that, 22 posts last year I think. Now for the post I’ve had on the list for several…

It’s been a while since my last post, and for good reason. I started a new job in early November and then in mid-November I moved into a new house. Big changes with a lot going on to say the least. With all these changes, my ideas haven’t slowed, but they have changed a bit.…

Everything Is In a Filter Bubble

Alarmist Filter Bubble

A week and a half ago was DevLearn, I’ve been mulling on writing this post ever since hearing Eli Pariser’s filter bubble talk. I was not at DevLearn, but did take part heavily in the backchannel. I felt like I followed most of the speakers good enough, although still filtered and not as good as…
