Portfolio

Thanks for visiting my portfolio. I have assembled a sample of recent writing projects if have published, the curriculum I have designed and taught, and leadership initiatives in which I’ve been involved.

Curriculum Design

I have always loved to teach. But, along the way, I’ve discovered that I have an equal love for designing curriculum. I thrive on the challenge of gaining a working understanding of a large scope of information and then breaking it down into an organized, purposeful sequence that allows adult learners to access the information and—more—to take action on the basis of what they’ve learned.

The following are a few examples of the curriculum I’ve created recently.

Writing

Writing is my passions and my most natural skills. Not satisfied to leave my talent underdeveloped, I have been honing and refining it for over two decades as a student, a professional, as a hobbyist, and as a helper to others.

My writing style ranges from inspirational to technical, creative to narrative. Here are some samples:
