Ever since I embarked on an MFA in writing, I learned a lot more about InDesign through duplicating page structures, layouts, and text/image spacing of futurist poetry. I worked on layouts for my school newspaper as an undergraduate and am currently using InDesign to structure my PhD dissertation for publication. I have tremendous amount of experience in helping others develop their own pages for courses I was a teaching assistant in as well as helping professors with their own books/scholarly articles through InDesign.
The first programming language I ever learned was in C++. I am skilled at teaching people how to make C++ programs because it is a fun, object-driven language. I taught large groups of students how to use C++ for projects they were building before the completion of my Ph.D. in Arts and Computational Technology.
I have taken several courses in programming unlimited to C++, Processing, Max/MSP/Jitter, PHP and Java. Prior to getting my PhD in Arts and Computational Technology, I worked on a few programs that implemented Max/MSP/Jitter. I have taught students several of these programs and how to make interactive interfaces.
My PhD is from a Computer Science department. I collaborated and worked with a lot of different people from computer science backgrounds. I have experience in C++ and my interests fall into interactive web design and Max/MSP/Jitter, as well as social media platforms.
I can teach both pencil and digital drawing. I have over two decades of experience in perspective, shading and composition. I also can convert hand drawings into Illustrator files.
I am qualified to tutor students in Dreamweaver. I have both formally and informally taught students how to use Dreamweaver for almost ten years for a variety of projects using this program as the framework.I am skilled in helping show how to navigate its intuitive layout. Many web design and publishing projects I have assisted others with are completed with the aid of Dreamweaver.
I offer a substantial background with using HD film equipment and accessories. I can help create a film using Final Cut Pro and have helped students with a plethora of editing and technical issues related to film. I am also skilled in studio lighting and setting up cameras.
I have knowledge in teaching and tutoring Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and InDesign. I have created images for both print and digital publications; and can help students in both fields. I also have a PhD in Arts and Computational Technology.
I am naturally placed in the role of helping others with their computers as I am highly skilled in using Macintosh. I have owned several MacBook Pros over the course of almost ten years. I have experience troubleshooting and helping others figure out their macs in every university setting I've been in.
I have a substantial computer background. I can help anyone with email-related issues to Outlook. I constantly used Outlook and understand how to troubleshoot any technical issue related to it.
I am fluent in how Windows operates since I have worked on many projects on the system. I can fix most computer-related issues with Windows. I can also patiently teach anyone how to navigate it.
I have worked with helping inspire others through various workshops on the foundational aspects of music since I was in high school. As I currently work at the Echo and Echoplex, I have given talks about the history of rock music. I have also showed how music from the past influences current music through audio and video demonstrations as a graduate teaching assistant at UC Santa Cruz. I taught the cultural components of music, as well as famous historical figures.
I am a skilled and published photographer; and have shot with both manual and digital SLR cameras. I know how to teach students f stops as well as shutter speeds and ASA/ISO settings. I can help show the differences and appropriate settings for certain lighting situations. I can also teach how to use various equipment like lighting and tripods.
I have experience teaching PHP since 2011 before my completion of a PhD in Arts and Computational Technology. As I am skilled in helping others build webpages and run my own sites using PHP, I am good at using it too. I helped a class of 30 students ranging from simple to more complicated problems.
My role in undertaking groups of 30 to 40 students as a teaching assistant was to help them prepare for their midterms and finals. I am skilled at preparation, memory building and organization. I can help students remember and prepare for information by structuring what is on their tests in an orderly and cohesive way.
I use Final Cut Pro and iMovie for big-screen and new media installations. I helped students with transitions, contrast, sound issues and exporting files that run on a projector. I am skilled with editing from most programs and using cameras.
I am very qualified and skilled to teach web design. I have been building websites for over ten years. As I completed my PhD in Arts and Computational Technology, I worked on websites to not only display my work, but to interact with it. I have taught digital media courses to large groups of students and instructed them how to create a framework for HTML through PHP.
