I’m a creative fellow with a curiosity about the intersection of learning, design, and technology. Tom Peters has said that Design is the soul of the new enterprise, and this sums the approach to all I do: only by understanding the needs of our customers can we craft solutions that work.
Each project brings an opportunity for growth and I look for it in whatever work engages me. I’ve had the occasion to develop content for all manner of media, and on the large projects I’ve managed, I have a knack for getting the right talent on the team and keeping them happy and productive. With over 18 years of management experience in the learning industry, I’m also nearing completion of my education degree, a Master of Science in Instructional Technologies at Bloomsburg University.
I produce and host The Learning Circle podcast for the Defense Acquisition University, for which I interview leading lights in our field—authors and experts who can help us master this magical process we call Learning. To quote Jay Cross, “human conversation is the most powerful learning technology ever invented.” Accordingly, my interest in podcasting spans a decade, to the format’s infancy. One of my projects, Design Guy, garnered listener praise and the attention of Apple, who featured it multiple times as an official iTunes editorial selection. It has been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times and was recently named one of the best programs of its kind by the premier design website, CreativeBloq. For fun, I produce a show about classic television called TV TERROR, which also features interviews with scholars in the field.
On a personal note, I enjoy writing (mostly non-fiction) about a variety of subjects. When I’m not spending time with my family, I have an old garden tractor that’s fun to ride, but which sorely tests my mechanical abilities.
