Brian started as a graphic artist converting camera ready art to digital using Adobe Illustrator back in the mid 1990’s. His first experience as an actual trainer and curriculum designer began with Marketlinx in 2001 designing and delivering custom classes for real estate agents and appraisers on using the Marketlinx MLS system. From 2001 until 2010 Brian worked as a contractor for companies like IBM Learning, Pearson Education and Accenture as either a trainer or instructional designer.
In 2010, he joined Sandata as a senior trainer and account manager. As a state account manager Brian was responsible for both educating the client and the end-users on using Sandata’s Santrax Payor Management software while managing stakeholder and client relations. During Brian’s 5 years at Sandata, he worked with state agencies like AHCA, Choices and DADS to develop business cases and identify business needs. Brian then worked with Sandata’s programming team to develop a requirements solutions document describing in technical detail how the company proposed to solve the problems. His experience includes developing customized reports using Excel, speaking at quarterly town hall meetings with end users, managing quarterly face to face meetings with the clients, and performing weekly WebEx meetings and update training classes for clients and end-users. Brian’s experiences at Sandata definitely reinforced his analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation skills (ADDIE).
In 2017, Brian earned a Post Baccalaureate from Walden University in Instructional Design while working as an Instructional Designer for Improvement Interactive.
