Multimedia developer & teacher

Creating interactive multimedia is one of my passions.

I have ten years experience teaching interactive multimedia for the UAF Department of Journalism. I have also taught classes in photography, writing, editing, typography and publication design.

Examples of this multimedia on the web include the Hawai'i Tsunami Education Curriculum, Cryospheric Connection, Cyber-enabled Education, Alaska Tsunami Education Program and the Arctic Climate Modeling Program.

The Denali National Park Project

DVD DiscThe Denali National Park Project is an interactive educational project with games and activities all themed to Denali National Park and Preserve. The Denali National Park Project is available in the UA Museum gift shop and elsewhere. The Denali National Park Project is also available for the Apple iPad and Android tablets

Design, programming and development of this personal project took me nearly four years (evenings and weekends). The Denali National Park Project (see the website | Facebook | YouTube) includes interactive edu-games, puzzles, more than 120 photos, a complete set of topographic hiking maps, and an overview of the wildlife, science, geography and history of the park.

Rental cabins and renewable energy

DVD DiscMy rental business Nature Cabins LLC provides clean, quiet and private cabins near the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I'm interested in renewable energy. Two solar cabins produce more electricity than the tenants use annually.

Other interests

Toastmasters International, running and camping. I support the Fairbanks Community Food Bank, Big Brothers Big Sisters, KUAC Public Radio, Doctors Without Borders, United Way of the Tanana Valley, and others. I have provided consulting for Visualize ASL (American Sign Language).
