Adobe Illustrator

I have used and taught Adobe Illustrator since the version 10 to CS5.
I have used it for print, web design, video, painting, animation, logo design, photo retouching, automating tasks, collaborative work, storyboarding, mock up, illustrating, and self-expression.

I believe in teaching by project, to give a concrete goal and an enjoyable process to the learning experience.

Each project shows a tangible progression and a finished product in the end as a reward. It allows also a range of choices for different results and effects.

Adobe Photoshop

I have used it for print, web design, video, painting, animation, logo design, photo retouching, automating tasks, collaborative work, scanning, storyboarding, mock up, illustrating, and self-expression.

French

As a native French speaker and language learner, I take pride in transmitting my knowledge of French language and culture to improve communication, understanding and relations. To do so, I have taught French to students from Cañada College, De-Anza College, San José State University, California State University Monterey Bay, and business students.
