Thanks for stopping by. Let’s connect.

I’m a JMP Product Trainer at SAS, producing videos and story based learning solutions in the Analytics + Data Viz space. I also organize a Maker group in Raleigh that has a eLearning dev element @thehacklab .  If you make anything or need learning content solutions, Instructional Design or Storyline development I’d like to connect and share some resources that helped me leverage the power of my favorite dev applications and using story concepts to engage and teach.

A plug for my employer, SAS is an analytic software company with powerful analytic solutions and data discovery tools for predictive analytics and data viz. You can get free Tips and updates from my New User blog over there on data viz and some best practices. If you’re interested, here’s a learning roadmap you can access now. The JMP New User Welcome Kit  was built in Articulate Storyline 360. It supports multiple languages with closed captions. I also have an upcoming data viz channel on Vimeo.

A quick side note. Fist Bumps are going out. Use them while you can.

Subscribe to my newsletter to connect and grab some of my favorite learning templates and resources.

I’m also a tech geek, maker and story teller. I dig DIY crazy projects, all types of crafts, photography, welding and making things in my garage with my 2 daughters and wife Suzanne. If you’re in Raleigh and a Maker call me to build something together at 919-807-1158.

As a story teller at heart, my career passion is to help corporate and university clients design, write and build world changing story based eLearning training modules. By using crafted and consistent graphics we’re able to focus on the objective and avoid distractions that usually derail a learning experience.  However, what’s cool is that I still have a lot to learn so I’m glad I found eLearning as an career in my life, it gets me charged up and there is always something new to learn…longest run on sentence in the galaxy, oh well.

Check out some of my fun learning projects I have going on.

learnstruck | a quick video project.
The sweet spot in video duration is 5o-90 seconds. After that folks click away. So if you’ve ever wanted to create a quick learning video for marketing content and not sure how to go about it. I have examples here and best practices. It takes a lot more then just speaking fast. Trust me.

HACK LAB | makes something different.
I’ve turned my garage into a maker space and I’m uploading weekly DIY build videos from log long boards, t-shirt makers and phone charging stations that lock the cords down. | what’s your story?
Have the coolest story or scenario you want to teach, illustrate for your book, or present?  I’ve been there countless times searching thru stock libraries for a simple icon set that conveys my message. These are grouped, not just by style type, but also grouped and packaged intelligently to explain a process or story line.  So I’ve asked my favorite illustrators and design students to join me and design what I’m calling storyparts.  That after choosing the style you want from the story library , you can download and can drag and drop into a variety of applications including ScreenFlow, Camtasia, Apple Motion, After Effects, and Powerpoint.
