Here is a link  to an animated resume I created that will provide some insight into my professional objectives.
Having spent over two decades providing technical support (in roles of increasing responsibility) for electro mechanical system providers, I have developed a strong appreciation for safety practices, advanced troubleshooting strategies, 'Lean' maintenance strategies, and Performance Improvement strategies.
My most recent professional endeavor involves developing support for the semiconductor manufacturing community, in efforts to improve overall equipment efficiency (OEE), and overall labor effectiveness (OLE). By designing simulator technologies that enable web based performance support, I provide opportunity to improve OLE by over 30%, saving both time and money. Improvements to OEE efficiency vary,but can be evaluated by improved equipment up-time metrics, and decreased supply chain loading.
My simulator designs are based primarily upon characteristics outlined by Clark Alderich, and strategies of Ruth Clark. Although these simulators have specifically targeted semiconductor manufacturing equipment; I can adapt to any industries general user interface (GUI)software, or hardware.
Designing simulators that enable learning, has required effective integration of SCORM compliant capabilities. By thoughtfully integrating SCORM compliant technology, I am assured these products will articulate across any enterprise Learning Management Systems (LMS)

I have been fortunate to have been exposed to highly sophisticated technologies throughout my career. Technology ranging from military ground radar navigation systems, to laser powered semiconductor manufacturing tools.
Providing support for these technically challenging fields has forced me to discover ways to more efficiently present operational intricacies, and improve learner performance competencies, under less than accommodating environments. I am driven to overcome the challenges of providing learning support options when access to training equipment is limited.
The rapidly changing landscapes of the semiconductor manufacturing community (cyclical, technical limits) are demanding fresh perspectives be taken to make continued progress in performance improvement initiatives. It is this motivation that has encouraged me to undertake a serious integration initiative of social Web 2.0, and other social learning technology.
My personal interests are an extension of my professional interests.
I am interested in maintaining my physical health. To remain physically fit, I enjoy camping in the Colorado outdoors, and riding mountain bike on 20 mile rides.
Much to the shag-rim of my family, I an an amateur photographer. My camping and bike trips are often extensively photographically documented. Here a small portfolio I recently assembled to illustrate my skill.
I enjoy a quiet game of chess, playing Scrabble and reading a good book.
