What to know about Norman
I am not defined by my job (whatever it might be at the time), but my job is an integral part of me. I value what I do and bring value to what I create.
For over 18 years, I have worked as a Content Developer and Instructional Designer at IBM. I work with subject matter experts to create content and build learning using a variety of tools. My manager describes me as her Video Wrangler because I am the one person in the department willing to dive into the video management tools (and any other tools we consider using) to figure out how to best manage 10k+ videos over 40+ accounts. I am among the most requested people for various projects and clients because they know that I am fearless in my determination to make a project succeed.

Norm? Yes. Normal? Not so much. My base of operations is Atlanta, GA. Most everything that happens to me happens there.
Sometimes, between projects, I do get to get away. In those cases, I revel in the not-so-ordinary, whether it’s playing with falcons in Ireland, bungee-jumping at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, or hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru. The videos I produce are less about scripted and polished cinematography and more about creating a lived experience so that others know what to expect. And I take inspiration from these places for my creative writing.
I also hang around Highland Games (any reason to wear my kilt) and Renaissance Fairs (any reason to don my swords).
