Eurovision

Renee and I went on a date a few weeks ago to a parody of the Eurovision concert competition but was obviously based here in Adelaide. It was called Eurobeat, top night for sure, I would recommend it to anyone. For those interested the website is www.eurobeat.com.au. We sat in, would you believe Ireland’s area, and what is even more amazing, they won on the night. We stayed after the show for a bit and got a few signatures from quite a few of the performers, I had a mini chat with Julia about Rockwiz and the new series starting and Brian etc. The buggahs didnt have any CD’s but I will eventually buy one, cause I phoned up Glynn Nichols (the producer) and asked to get a copy. So, in time I will go get it.

Next on the agenda, work. For all those wanting to sleep,now is the time. My boss from Wales is now gone, my performance review went well, just been given more responsiblities for some stuff that is company confidential. Still working on that performance qualification documents and requirement specifications, as well as testing procedures and scripts for our development team. All good fun though, getting there tho. Migration is going well on network things, the licencing drama is still going and well, we may have a small IT Team but damn we are a great ship and work all well.

Finally, (wake up now im almost done), Renee caught up with an old highschool friend today (Emily), she used to be her best mate, so we all (Ella included) went to Snakes and Ladders in Gawler. Fun. Well, time to wrap up, off to get some DVD’s and veg out for the night, hopefully Ella will snooze a lot tonight, after puking so much on daddy today and screaming a bit.

I love the ability where I can plan, prioritise, design, develop and deliver blended learning solutions for a variety of markets. I love to consult and advise about the best use of digital learning and improve design standards in line with evolving ways of working. I also enjoy to keep up to date with, understand and regularly recommend emerging technologies and practice to improve individuals, teams and organisational capabilities. With over 12 years digital learning experience and demonstrated experience in both instructional design and eLearning development, I have also a lot of experience conducting training needs analysis including how to leverage principles such as design thinking and root cause analysis to understand and address performance gaps. I also have led many facilitation workshops and even presented at iDesignX and Game Developers Conferences both here in Australia, Wales and in the United States. I bring loads of coding experience in Java, ASM, C++, HTML, JavaScript, SCORM and xAPI, as well as proven capability using Adobe Captivate, Trivantis Lectora and Articulate Storyline 360 Studio authoring programs. Of course, Adobe Creative Cloud is also part of my toolbox which I also use daily. Being taught traditional and advanced 3D animation techniques, I love hand drawing and polymer clay sculpture, but can also use the Blender, 3D Studio Max, Maya and Softimage applications. With strong multimedia, training and programming backgrounds, I understand modern learner behaviour including micro and social learning, I am very familiar with most LMSes and app-based (XCode and Android Studio), adult learning models and e-solutions. I also possess the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously, whilst being pro-active in delivering work independently with minimal supervision, but enjoy working in teams. I've been told I am a resilient, relationship focused guy which can manage and navigate conflicting views and stakeholders/subject matter experts.
