Learning and Development Leader in Mountain View, California
Hi there, I'm B.J. and I'm a super-enthusiast when it comes to all things related to learning and development.
My ~12 years of experience in the L&D field has given me unique insight into how people work, learn, and develop their skills. I've worked at engineering, finance, high-tech, medical, and telecommunications organizations, which has given me the ability to jump in and contribute to nearly any environment or situation. My background in technology has also helped quite a bit, allowing me to dive in to recommend, diagnose, and implement a wide range of learning technology solutions. Simply put, I love working in learning and development because I get to help people improve and help organizations succeed.
I grew up in the Midwest and made my way out to California in 2008. I like to think that I combine Midwestern sensibilities with Silicon Valley know-how. I'm 99% sure my wife would tell me that statement is super corny, but I like to think that it's accurate.
You can find me online, at L&D events, at a hockey rink, or wandering around Silicon Valley looking for good coffee. Reach out if you'd like to chat about any of the above.
