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.

Social Awareness Program at MSIDT

I recently began a new consulting job with the Master’s program I got my degree from. It’s the MSIDT program at California State University Fullerton (CSUF). It wasn’t for any typical Instructional Design work which I’ve worked on (even in my side consulting jobs) but with social media skills at the center. I’ve done a lot…

Don't control knowledge. Let it free.

I tried posting this last week but I’ve been having a hard time, so here’s my second chance breaking my many week silence. Hopefully dropping some knowledge on the knowledge-base will open the flood gates. There’s been a few times when a knowledge base has popped up in my world lately, from where I put things…

What i'm Working On

Life ebbs and flows, that seems to be how it goes. I went from relatively quiet days to too much. The quiet was prior to 6 months ago, it’s gone to relatively busy since then. In the past few days it’s caught up with me, either that or I have a bug that’s slowing me down…

Attention Spans Are Getting Shorter

Attentions spans are shrinking, nobody can pay attention for more than a few seconds. That’s what I hear all the time, and it was brought up many times in a recent chat2lrn. Just to clear things up, an attention span is that thing that allows us to pay attention to something. You know, when something…
