My Day Job

what does an ID do

By day, I am an Instructional Designer for a software company (if you’re interested in my sordid work history – take a look at my LinkedIn profile). I design and develop training programs that help people learn to use our products. Which essentially means I get to write every day and ask questions and build integrated programs that ultimately help people do their jobs better. For the past several years I’ve worked for Nuance Communications, a speech recognition and natural language understanding company… we make technology that understands not only what we’re saying but what we mean when we say it, that digs into the context of our words and language, that interprets what we’ve said and applies artificial intelligence to add value. Our products help doctors provide better care, professionals do their jobs better and more efficiently, and businesses give better service to their customers. It’s mind-blowingly cool stuff, and it’s at this point where I think it would have been fun to be an engineer or a speech scientist. Or Anthropologist or photojournalist (click here to go back to my travel blog or here to see my stories on Medium).

I made this interactive resume a while ago now, but it was a fun little project.

And since I did my InstaGus project, I even made a bio for my dog!

Here are some samples of work I’ve done, that I can share on here:
