About Me

Thank you for visiting my site! Instructional design gives me great satisfaction; from planning out a course with SME, developing learning objectives, aligning learning activities and assessments to outcomes, building the learning objects, to getting feedback that a course I have collaborated on improved the learner’s experience.

I have a PhD in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies and a MSc in Curriculum and Instruction, both with an emphasis in Educational Technology. I also have a BA in Business with a focus on Human Resources. Browse through my projects, resume, and learning philosophy to get a better feel for what I do.
