Digital Learning & Multimedia Manager

Biography:

My professional passion is digital media, eLearning, and instructional design!  I currently work as the Digital Learning Manager with eLearning and I co-manage the XR Lab.

Prior to joining eLearning I worked with the Health Science Education and Wellness Division (HSEWI) as an eLearning Specialist. In addition,  I’ve taught as an adjunct instructor with Bellevue College teaching approximately one to three classes per quarter from January, 2000 – June 2020. I worked with the  Digital Media Arts, Programming, and Communication programs teaching Javascript, animation, and film studies. I have a few years experience teaching at other colleges in the Northwest, and from 1999-2014 I contracted with advertising and tech agencies in the Seattle area developing interactive media and animations.

I enjoy photography and creating documentary films. Several of my film projects have been accepted to local and international film festivals. I also enjoy running, painting, hiking and skiing. I am  proud of my son who is a skateborder, and he’s a huge fan of skateboarding in the Seattle area.
