About

Currently, I work in the Center for Distance and Online Learning Center at Hudson Valley Community College as an Instructional Designer. This position focuses on providing support and training to faculty, staff, and students in online course environments. I have expertise in the Blackboard Learning Management System.

I’m also a part-time faculty member at Hudson Valley Community. I teach Technology  in the Classroom online for the Teacher Preparation Department. This course prepares teachers for integrating technology into their classrooms, teaching styles, and more. I also teach Computer Concepts and Applications I for the Computing & Information Sciences Department. This course introduces students to basic computer concepts and navigating, along with exposure to Microsoft Office programs. I previously taught Strategies for Successful Online Learning online for the Individual Studies Department. This course prepares students to be successful online learners and allows them to make optimal use of the online learning resources that are available through the college and elsewhere.

Prior to Hudson Valley Community College, I worked as an Instructional Technologist at Northern Virginia Community College. This position focused on assisting faculty and students with computer related training needs, maintaining departmental computer labs, and serving as the departmental and campus wide webmaster. I also taught a Basic HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) course.

Prior to starting my career in the field of Instructional Technology and Design I worked as a Web/HTML Developer at several companies around the US. I still continue to do web design/development contract work. In 2014 I redesigned the website for the Ford Hill Country Club in Whitney Point, NY. I was also the webmaster for The Bethlehem Children’s School in Slingerlands, NY from 2014-2016. While there I redesigned their website, managed social media, and implemented their electronic communication platforms.

In my free time I enjoy traveling, especially to the Adirondack Mountains of New York State with my family. I relax by creating art. This website showcases my photography just one of my artistic pleasures. You will find images from my travels, vacations, garden, family, and more. Please enjoy.
