Summary

Jeremy Davis
I find that the most inspirational quality of humanity is its strength of will. When we allow our character to shine through we can accomplish great things.
Since 2006 I have worked in Instructional Design, Learing Experience Design, Training & Digital Media development. I am an expert user with nearly all of the Adobe Creative Cloud products as well as Adobe Captivate, Adobe Presenter, Articulate Studio and many more products. I have worked directly with high-profile clients and partners including one celebrity professor. My communication skills are complimented regularly as are my social skills with clients.

I have used my digital media, animation and voice-acting talents to produce videos, interactive elements and other engaging pieces of media. I can generally tackle any media project that I am assigned on my own with a little assistance from programmers when necessary.

In the Agile/SCRUM environment I have been a SCRUM Master and Product Owner developing engaging grad/undergrad course packages and corporate training solutions.
