TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a twenty-year veteran multimedia, audio/video and web producer and, most recently, career and technical education teacher and instructional technology / communications specialist. My career goals are to stay within the realm of education as it applies to community, technology and personal development. I am currently moving in a direction of consulting, training and providing educational opportunities through my own original online curriculum and short courses while providing free-lance multimedia, a/v and web production services as a side-line and am focusing my efforts on working with individual teachers, administrators, as well as schools and districts along with businesses that may have a need for such a dynamic approach to training or sales. I am also open to broadcast/public-speaking and other on-camera talent opportunities.
