I’ve been working as a freelance instructional designer and course author with Vancouver-based Limestone Learning since 2020. Together we’ve produced a wide variety of interesting projects on a diverse range of subject matter, in a variety of formats – animations, videos and traditional delivery methods.

Currents Group owner and former Head of Learning Services at MSF Canada, Dominique Giguère, reaches out to me from time to time to assist with development on various projects, often for international MSF partners. It’s always great to work with the person who got me started in elearning development and instructional design!    

AMONTario contracted me to design and build a 13 module Rise course on Asset Management and Climate Change for municipal asset managers and departments across Canada. It’s a particularly critical and urgent issue in todays warming world and was a very interesting project to work on.
