I'm not a classroom teacher, but I've tried to keep some educational content in my interactive work since I started my career in the late 90s. Recent work includes games that teach verbal skills through the PBS Kids web site and medical e-learning courses at the University of Washington. Older projects include corporate training courses. I also recently completed the Technical Writing and Editing certificate program at the University of Washington, and I have a growing interest in working on projects with informational or content-focused goals. I'd like to make that a priority or at least balance it with marketing projects.
I typically work in a technical role as a programmer, supporting designers, animators and creative directors on web projects and Flash projects. I work a flexible schedule at the University and will probably seek more technical writing and freelance programming work over the next year. It's a good time for me to explore possibilities as an edu enthusiast with some related project experience.
I'm a programmer who's worked on a variety of interactive media projects. My experience includes kids' educational games and corporate training courseware. I am now a web developer for the Training Xchange at the University of Washington.
