If you have a business problem that you think can be solved through better learning or training mechanisms, I may be able to help. I can consult with you and design a high-level learning solution. Alternately, I often recommend creating new content discovery solutions that aren't looking to directly push a training agenda. Lastly, if the solution I design for you includes videos, I may be able to write the scripts for those videos. If you are interested, email me, DM me on LinkedIn, or fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page.


If you are looking to break into instructional designing as a career or simply become a better instructional designer, I may be able to help. I offer a 6-week coaching program where I help you identify specific, achievable areas of improvement and then guide you on that journey. To start, I conduct a call with you to assess your current instructional designing prowess. Based on my understanding, I give you a scenario to come up with a learning plan. Upon reviewing that, we find three areas that we can improve within 6 weeks and start a series of assignments and feedback cycles to help you get to the next level. If you are interested, get in touch via email, DM on LinkedIn, or the contact form at the bottom of this page.
