About Me

I am currently working as a Learning Sciences Course Developer with the Nuclear Nonproliferation Division | Nuclear Security Sciences Directorate at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
I specialize in educational technology and learning management systems such as: Brightspace D2L, BlackBoard, Moodle, and Canvas. I have also worked with accessible content for the web, virtual classrooms with Adobe Connect, and other educational technologies.

The more I learn the more my interests change. I've been learning more and more about Oracle SQL databses, javascript, and javascript frameworks like VueJS.
