My name is Ray Cole. After spending over a decade as a software engineer (working primarily for NCR Corporation in San Diego, California), I made a career switch in the late 1990s to online learning and instructional design. In 2007 I began teaching graduate classes. I worked as an instructional design consultant until late 2010, designing classroom and online training for Johnson & Johnson, Amgen, Genentech, Corning Display Technologies, SupportSoft, and Wells Fargo, among others. In 2010 I took a Senior Instructional Designer position at Lam Research. Follow the Work link from the main menu to learn more.
I am also a published composer, and occasional collector of authentic screen-used costumes, props, and pre-production design art used in the production of the various Star Trek movies and TV shows. Follow the Music and Hobbies links to learn more.
I no longer manage or maintain the Old King Cole Productions record label’s website. You can find it now at its new address, http://www.oldkingcole.biz/.
