2 Skills
Writing & Editing

My education background is in English and art, but my work background is in Internet start-ups. Thus I bring a set of complementary skills to any workplace. My most recent writing experience has been with business and technical documents and website content, but I have an MA in English and work experience as a technical and creative editor, ghostwriter, composition and English instructor, manuscript reader, short story and screenplay writer.

Product Development, Creative Direction, Design, & Usability

I have overseen product development from concept to completion, I have years of experience doing and directing creative work, online and off. I have been responsible for everything from traditional marketing materials to simple websites to complex online applications.
Conceptualizing, wire-framing, developing look-and-feel ideas, directing designers and programmers, performing usability testing, and directing and doing quality assurance, I specialize in owning a project from start to finish. I believe that creativity is the
cornerstone of most successful business ventures.

Instructional Design

I have led the development of hundred of hours of online learning. My role has included all aspects of instructional design--everything from developing standards and methodologies to front-end analysis to work with subject-matter-experts to design/storyboarding to delivery and evaluation.

Client & Project Management

I have successfully directed e-learning, website and applications to meet clients’ branding, visual, performance, and technology needs. I have been a respected and well-liked client manager for companies such as Marriott, Hawaiian Airlines, USPS, Travel Channel, Rocky Mountain PBS, UCD, DU, Southwest Airlines, and Expedia.
