"Don’t be afraid to try something new. Life is an adventure. Enjoy the trip! Practice listening more and speaking less. Be “totally with” the person speaking. Don’t let anything distract you from hearing the other person."

Mike Powell

Technical Instructional Designer 2

I’m a native Californian (surf’s up dude), lived in Scottsdale, Arizona and now live in Overland Park, Kansas since 1999. I am married with three grown boys and two grandkids (hopefully more on the way!). I love the mountains, the desert southwest, playing golf, riding my road bike, playing my guitar and singing on the worship team, and waterskiing.

My career has taken me through programming, designing circular stairways, LAN/WAN system engineering, and now designing and developing adult learning for technology companies. I love the whole process of training design and development and to collaborate and learn from others. I often look to take on the weird one-off projects just for the experience I would gain. But, the biggest kick I get out of my job is contributing to the team’s success which in turn contributes to our customer’s success.
