Education & Interests

I earned a Master of Science in Instructional and Performance Technology from Boise State University, studying human performance improvement, instructional design, and adult learning theory. I completed a ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Rowan University (summa cum laude),  focusing my studies on artificial intelligence and computing theory.

I also have certificates in Training & Development, Strategic Human Resources, Human Performance Technology, Online Teaching & Learning, and MOOC Design. I've recently completed a program in Social Sector (non-profit) Leadership from Berkeley-Haas.

I'm a big believer in lifelong learning and that skills and knowledge grow (and evolve) over the course of one's life. I'm currently constructing a program of MBA coursework using massively-open online courses (MOOCs). This includes classes from top universities in both traditional and highly-customized areas of business education. See my profile page at

My academic interests include educational psychology, especially metacognition; collaboration and knowledge management; story and analogy as teaching tools; and performance assessment.
