Hi, I'm Chris. I'm an award-winning instructional designer with more than a decade of professional experience. I'm passionate about cutting-edge technologies and digital innovation in education. I've written about crime and media for more than a decade. Books include Violence in American Society, Covering Canadian Crime, Habitus of the Hood, and Batman and the Joker. I work at Thorn, where I collaborate with law enforcement, engineers, and other stakeholders to produce training. I'm an expert in evidence-based adult learning principles, learning theories, instructional design methodologies, and development models such as ADDIE, SAM, and Kirkpatrick's Levels of Education. I also love to develop web applications and unique digital solutions. Please reach out if there's a project we can collaborate on!
