  • UX 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.
  • 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.

Join Me And Keep Ideas From Fading Away

I’m sitting here on Halloween having just finished carving the pumpkins with my daughter and wife. It has become a tradition to get all the seeds, clean them up, and roast them into a delicious Halloween treat. I’m smelling them roast in the oven right now smothered in olive oil, salt, and as my wife…

Going To Work After Vacation - My Slow Path Back

My last post was almost a month and a half ago, which makes it obvious to me that once you take a break, it’s hard to get back in the groove. Unplugging isn’t easy, but going to work after vacation is less easy. I stopped a bit early for a vacation I went on from…

What are the benefits of sharing ideas at work?

There are many benefits from sharing ideas at work. I thought it would be good to write this because I occasionally hear people talk about sharing creates stolen ideas and in return fighting over those stolen ideas. There are other thoughts on why sharing ideas at work shouldn’t be done but my focus on why…

Employees Avoiding Corporate Barriers

Employees Avoiding Corporate Barriers

This is a story that is close to me because I see employees avoiding corporate barriers every day. I’ve seen what command and control leads to and it’s not good for anybody, organization or employee. When an organization gets worried about lawsuits and starts to shut computer systems down to prevent leaks and errors, people don’t…
