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.

How do you get people to use a enterprise social network? Make it stupidly easy to use!

I presented this question, and an overly simplified answer last week on Twitter.

What's my development process

A few weeks ago there was a bit of restructuring in my company within my greater department. Several teams had been re-organized into an easier structure. This also meant a new multimedia training team was created, that’s where I went. This new team was unheard of to the rest of the department. We were to explain the…

Command and Control

Command & Control

Many things have gone through my head lately about how safety of private information can be balanced with freedom of information exchange in the enterprise. It wasn’t until I read a post from Julian Stodd, Denied: outdated models of authority and control in the Social Age that I really felt the need to write something down.…
