The Documented Journey of this Instructional Designer and Technologist

I wanted to layout my experience in a manner that better reflected my samples of work. The road less traveled is the road for me. As I continue to help create training solutions for those looking to improve their lives, I will document  and reflect upon the journey. There is much to be learned not only in doing, but also in reflecting.
