The Temple of Zoom

Upon entering my new role at CSUB, I was tasked to create a training for distance-learning using Zoom for instructors who opted for synchronous class sessions with their students.

From Teacher to Instructional Designer

My slide deck for the COATD 2nd Annual Emerging Professionals Showcase. This was my presentation offering advice and my story for those looking to break into the field of instructional design. Video of session available HERE!

Storyline Projects

Timeline & Layer Practice

This was inspired by an eLearning Heroes challenge. In essence, I wanted to create animations that revealed layers of the timeline. It was tricky for sure! The hardest part was having the other buttons revert back to normal states and not remain selected. But I learned a lot by doing this one.

My First Storyline Project

I decided to combine my love of GSuite and their products with my love of voiceover work. I received a little feedback from some Reddit friends, and that ultimately led to one of the quiz questions being a hotspot question rather than just a regular multiple-choice.

Video Examples

Mixed Media with Camtasia

A video I helped create for the esteemed company, Learning Carton. Chris and I worked very closely together on this video. His knowledge and vision along with my Camtasia expertise came together to create a video for his business to help people understand the basics of screencasting in a 1-minute video. Oh, and that’s my voiceover, too!

Motion Graphics with Camtasia

When all you get is a script and a few screenshots, what do you do? Animate the assets available in Camtasia! Also, pull in a few icons from Icon Monster!

Stock Assets

A client needed a quick turnaround for an advertisement, but all they had was a single slide and a script. I used Storyblocks stock footage & music inside of Camtasia to create a video for them to use on their site. And the voiceover was done by me in my home studio!

Tip Of The Week

My university puts out a “Tip Of the Week” every week, and yours truly does the voiceover and video creation for it. Here is an example of using Ally, the accessibility checker, in our LMS, Canvas. I always try to keep in mind what is essential and that shorter is often better for these types of tutorials.

Reshaping a Tutorial

A client provided a tutorial of an application with some basic narration, and I re-edited the video and added narration to guide the end user more effectively.

WordPress / Web Development

MittsTech

Yep! The site you’re currently on is one that I designed myself. I use an array of WordPress plugins and prefer to use Elementor page builder to build my sites. It’s fast, flexible, and easily updateable.

My voiceover portfolio is one that I also designed. Centered around portfolio needs, I also used Elementor and WordPress to create this. This particular site was a little trickier as I had to harness a lot of HTML/CSS tricks to get it just the way I wanted it!

Loki & Co.

An eCommerce store I developed for a colleague using WooCommerce. This project got my client’s store up and running quickly and allows her to update inventory on the backend, manage orders, run sales, etc. quickly and easily.

VoiceOver

Home Studio

I am able to produce professional quality audio from my home studio. Please use the voiceover link in the top NavMenu for more details and samples. Having an ID that doubles as a voice artist (VA) is both convenient and cost effective!

I have a dedicated vocal booth treated with mineral wool insulation, a TLM 103, and an SSL2+ audio interface.
