I appreciate you visiting my webpage!

I cultivate communities of continuous creative learning by offering:

  • Learning experience design
    • Instructional design
    • Interactive e-learning
    • Training workshops
    • Learning systems design
  • Creativity consulting & coaching

My specializations are collaborating with creative workers and cultivating non-cognitive ‘soft’ skills to enhance individual and organizational performance.

With a background in music composition and jazz, I am well-prepared to embrace complexity and conceptual ambiguity. Please listen to a sample of my music, Akasaka (opens in new tab), while you’re here.

Sixteen years as a teacher—twelve in IB schools—have honed my focus on learner agency and self-efficacy. Ten years of my career are detailed on my teaching blog, Symphony of Ideas (opens in new tab). Living in Japan for the past thirteen years, I developed a unique aesthetic sensibility, cultural awareness, and social acuity.

Recently, I have used memberships in Learning & Development organizations to expand my knowledge of adult learning theories, best practices, and business acumen. Examples of my work are featured on my portfolio. I am excited to consider new projects and opportunities. Please enjoy browsing this site using the buttons below and feel free to contact me.
