Alejandro “Ale” Ruelas

"Alejandro Ruelas, or “Ale” for short, has designed and developed learning experiences for 7 years. He has worked in various spaces, including public education, higher ed, non-profit, and international corporations, and holds a Master’s in Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Boston College. No matter the environment, he always focused on ensuring that the learning solutions were people-centered. Ale currently works for a major software company as an instructional designer where he leads the organization’s onboarding for new business sales. When he’s not making learning “sticky” for work and mentoring young professionals, you can usually find him in the kitchen experimenting with Mexican recipes. If he’s not there, he’s probably in the outdoors, lost, foraging for wild edible plants".
