Simpson Strong-Tie
Training Content Developer
Pleasanton, CA
I am a Training Content Developer at a construction manufacturing company. Our engineered code-approved products are used to increase safety in residential and commercial buildings (e.g., nails, holdowns, hangers, anchors etc.)

I write and create technical online and instructor-led courses for our customers specifying our products (typically engineers, architects, and building officials) who need continuing educational units to keep their licenses current.

I have a background in writing and copyediting. I'd be interested in speaking about best practices for effectively structuring content in a variety of mediums (instructor-led courses verses online courses verses handouts/manuals etc.) I also am well versed in the authoring tools Articulate Studio and Storyline and look forward to hearing more ideas for how to use these tools to increase learning transfer.
I'd also be interested in learning about freelance writing and how to being a career doing this.
