As an Adobe Certified Instructor, my goal is to share my years of expertise with students who are passionate about computer graphics. Although most of my work is digital, I am a traditionally trained artist. I began over ten years ago as an adjunct instructor at Santa Rosa Junior College and also teach for various training centers, including New York-based Netcom and the Bay Area Video Coalition in San Francisco. In addition, I do private training and consulting for corporations and individuals. I have presented my unique techniques and approaches at the North Bay Adobe Users' Group and teach Photoshop and design classes at the Academy of Art and the College of Marin. As an Adobe Certified Instructor in the latest versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash I share my experience on my own illustration
blog as well as writing articles and tutorials on various digital imaging websites. I am fluent in Spanish and have experience with other languages. I enjoy writing and one of my accomplishments was researching, co-authoring, designing, and doing the layout for a book on exploring Mayan ruins.

I look forward to working with you and helping you accomplish your own goals.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Illustrator

I am an Adobe Certified Expert and have taught and used Illustrator for many years. I can cover all topics, from basic to advanced.

Adobe InDesign

I have used InDesign professionally for years while working at an ad agency to produce brochures, mailers, and tables. I have also done all the production work in InDesign for two books I wrote and I have taught courses at the Bay Area Video Coalition.

Adobe Photoshop

I am an Adobe Certified Expert and have taught and used Photoshop for many years. I can cover all topics, from basic to advanced.

Drawing

I am a working artist with a BFA in Illustration. My schooling included perspective drawing, color theory, life drawing, commercial illustration, media, and all aspects needed to prepare artists to render realistically. I specialize in realistic illustration and have taught art and design classes on various levels. I also have online portfolios of work I can submit for review.

Graphic Design

My schooling included graphic design, commercial illustration, typography, and logo design. As a professional designer, I have created graphics, logos, websites, magazine ads, large format graphics, multi-page layouts, and many other design jobs on the professional level. I have taught art and design classes on the college level.

Spanish

I am fluent in Spanish, having studied on many levels, from junior high to college. I have traveled in Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras, leading private expeditions and I lived in Argentina for two years, where I taught religious subjects and English. I place a high emphasis on correct grammar and understand how to present the language to a non-native speaker.
