I create learning materials for professional audiences. I write blog posts on cybersecurity and other topics designed to market courses. Links to sample posts are on the Blog page.

Coaching and mentoring
Coaching and mentoring are key aspects of a wholistic learning environment.  I help developers, instructional designers, speakers and management to find unusual solutions, be more creative, approach problems and constraints in new ways and generally look at situations from new perspectives.

am available for speaking engagements on topics relating to: personal aspects of security (e.g. Five Steps to Preventing Identity Theft), education/learning/workplace performance (e.g. Choosing a Training Provider) and some “fun topics” related to travel and art.

Ideating is the processing of thinking or forming ideas. I am known for new and out-of-the box ideas and for helping others throw away their boxes.
