About

I am one part artist and one part geek. Originally from New Orleans but I have lived half my life in the New York, and now New Jersey, area. I transitioned from a career in the performing arts to one in the learning sphere.

For more than two decades I have worked as a classroom instructor, online facilitator, instructional designer, presentations design and delivery coach, and project manager. I can often be spotted taking pictures of things many people don’t bother to stop and look at, like flowers and details on buildings.

I can be found throughout the cyberworlds blogging and tweeting on gamification, e-learning, creativity, communication in the digital age, and more. I answer all of my emails, usually within 24 hours. I love email and helping people. Won’t you drop me a line and let me know how I might help you? Or just say hi.

Video and Podcasts

I chatted with Monica Cornetti on Gamification Talk Radio. Hear a little about the project that inspired 4 Cs to an A+ Learning Experience that I presented at GamiCon.

Many giggles and ideas were shared between host Rob Alvarez and I during this episode of Professor Game where we talked about wins, failures, favorite games and resources, and more.

While you can catch videos of my across social media, I did a special challenge to share dozens of gameful ideas in what became the 40 Gameful Days of Summer.
