[SAMPLE DATA FOR SPACING] I enjoy a mix of the arts and the technology. Recently I have been developing tools for the Air Force Special Operations Air Warfare Center to bring their courseware out of Flash and into HTML5. I have also been very intrigued at the growing technology of VR and how it has the potential to change the way we teach.

Please have a look through my page. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via the methods listed at the bottom of the page.

Thank you,
