I help people learn better. I assist learners, stakeholders and communities by integrating great design with new technologies such as artificial intelligence to learn more effectively. My goal is to create exceptional learning experiences for learners by combining the creativity of experiential design, the methods of instructional design, and my extensive knowledge of how people learn with technology. I work closely with subject experts and conduct deep research to create human-centric designs that blend my design and technical skills with my experience as an instructor and competence using eLearning and conferencing software, Learning Management Systems (LMS), and new technologies such as artificial intelligence.
With a Diploma in Technical Writing, an undergraduate Honours Degree in Communications Studies, and a Master of Science degree in eLearning and technology, I bring over 12 years of experience working with a variety of stakeholders to the table. My background as a professional photographer, videographer, writer, and instructor allows me to create engaging content and exciting and effective learning experiences with measurable results.
Whether you need help building online curriculum, courses, and end-to-end training systems, or guidance on using cutting-edge technologies like augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI), and voice interaction (chatbots), I am here to help you. With my skills and expertise, I can create learning experiences that will help you achieve your goals and drive measurable results.

A few examples of my work that showcase design and technology skills as well as my photography and video work and data analysis
Class and course creation
Adept at using Articulate Storyline and Captivate
Best Banff app
Co-designed and developed app for Alberta tourism to assist in location direction and photography creation. App used visuals for direction and instruction instead of written language to make it usable for international clients despite language difference
Designed cartoon to act as replacement for video in ebook for instruction on series of steps
Co-designed and created augmented reality app for photographers to find features with instruction on how to use them
I create high quality photography. I am adept at editing and managing large photography collections and using most photography related software. (Produced photography for commercial and editorial markets- including National Geographic magazine before becoming an Instructional Designer)
I design and create infographics
Designed and created eBook to help photographers learn photography. Goal of project was to make content mostly visual for easier understanding

Shot, edited and produced video and short films for broadcast, for clients including, National Geographic, the web and eLearning and app projects
Data analysis and application
Competent ingesting, analyzing and applying data
Volunteer work and related experience
Co-wrote and presented paper on using Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing to create a mobile agent for learning. Presented the paper at the 2018 HCI conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
We present a dynamic framework for the integration of Machine Learning (ML), Augmented Reality (AR), Affective Computing (AC), Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Computer Vision (CV) to make possible, the development of a mobile, sympathetic, ambient (virtual), augmented intelligence (Agent). For this study we developed a prototype agent to assist photographers to enhance the learning and creation of photography.
