5 Good Reasons to Fall In Love… With eLearning
The Clearly Trained Team
Our team is made up of five of the most talented individuals in the eLearning industry today. With over half a century of combined classroom training and eLearning development experience, we have provided services for some of the most well-known companies in history. We enjoy air conditioning, great music, and those with a sense of humor. Whether you’re a future client or employee, we’re sure you’ll say that working with us is like working with the family you’d choose if you had the choice.
Eric Bort, Founder/Creative Director
This is Eric. Not only is he the creative wizard behind the Clearly Trained curtain, he’s also the only member of the team that can stick to a diet and workout regimen. While his leadership has played an integral part of the success of the company, because of his Hulk-like strength he is considered by many to be a ‘double threat’ to the eLearning industry (triple, if you count his good looks). As the winner of numerous national design and educational awards, Eric has cemented his place in eLearning lore for years to come.
Eric holds a BFA in Interactive Media from the Columbus College of Art & Design.
Matt Hicks, Sr. Interactive Developer
While Matt is the quiet, humble warrior of the team, it’s been his perseverance and dedication to learning new technology that has kept Clearly Trained at the forefront of the eLearning industry. His attitude, work ethic, and design prowess are only eclipsed by his exceptional illustration and animation skills.
In case you’re wondering, a typical day for Matt includes listening to Justin Bieber, pondering the mysteries of Adobe products, fighting crime, and making clients happy. As the only Android smartphone user on the team, it’s also safe to say he’s a Googlist.
Matt proudly holds a BS in Informatics from Indiana University.
David Buschermohle, Interactive Developer
David Busch.. Bushwa.. eh.. not only has an aggressive beard that a lumberjack would be envious of, but he’s also fluent in interactive design, mobile development, and really annoying email alert sound FX. When he’s not consuming Cheerwine, growing facial hair, or making buttons, he’s the go-to guy when it comes to discovering local events and restaurants.
Derek Carr, Interactive Developer
Not only is Derek the second newest member of our team, he’s also a Japanese sword enthusiast, drinker of coffee, and one of the most outstanding environment artists since Bob Ross. When he’s not crafting masterpieces in the third-dimension or forcing people to use his code snippets, you can usually find him doing one of the three G’s — gardening, grilling or gaming.
As our resident pixel perfectionist, he prides himself in creating designs that go well beyond our client’s expectations.
Derek received an AAS in Multimedia from ITT Technical Institute.
Lee Wiley, Interactive Developer
Lee… Why Lee? Well only because he’s the biggest thing to come from the West and hit the East since grilled cheese on a donut. With his upbeat attitude and social nature, this illustration maestro is the latest edition to our fine collection of creative nerds.
Lee crafts art in the fields of comics, animation, motion graphics, graphic design, and of course eLearning, which means this Westerner is the swiss-army knife of skills at Clearly Trained.
Lee is the possessor of a BFA in Illustration from Southern Utah University.
