He was invited by the U.S. State Department to go to Amman, Jordan to train high school teachers from Jordan and Lebanon in the use of technology in education, and to share open education resources with them.

The purpose of this website is to work alongside my Beginning and Advanced Photoshop students as we create an e-Portfolio of our skills and progress using design principles and strategies, as well as some of the more advanced features of Photoshop. This e-Portfolio will contain examples of my work completed during the semester. Our portfolios for the class will be completed by the end of the semester - so visit again and watch my portfolio grow over the semester. I also use this site to show some of my own artwork and photography.

I hope my students will continue to build their portfolios as they graduate and move into the job market. The purpose of this assignment is to provide them a way to share their skills online with potential employers.
