I love to teach. I am a 52 year old retired cosmetic dentist with an undergraduate degree in Biology from Washington University (St. Louis, MO). Also, I have 4 children, two in college, one graduating college and one in law school, that have helped me to understand the differences in many kids' learning styles...and, how to work with their styles. One of my children has learning disabilities, and has taught me how to work with kids that may learn differently. I have done photography (both traditional film/dark room as well as digital) for 23 years. I have extensive knowledge and training in Photoshop as well as video shooting and post production editing in Final Cut pro. I have experience in computers on both Macs and PC's and have configured and built my own computer systems.

I have successfully completed 8 online courses involving the use of Photoshop for Photography. I have an extensive portfolio and currently market my work as stock photography.

I currently use photshop to edit all of my work which inclueds roughly 10,000 images. I have been using Photoshop since 2001 and currently have the latest verion of Photoshop which is CS3. I have completed online courses, as well, that cover the new features of the newest version.
