I have over ten years' experience in the desktop publishing field. I have the knowledge to prepare hi-resolution images for inclusion into page layout programs such as InDesign. I can also set up style sheets for formatting text from body copy to headlines, and after setting up master pages defining where text and images boxes appear on the page, flow the text into the document.
Having received a master's degree in photography and digital imaging, I have extensive knowledge in shooting digital photos and editing those photos within Photoshop.

I can also set-up style sheets for formatting text from body copy to headlines, and after setting up master pages defining where text and images boxes appear on the page, flow the text into the document. Text flow around irregular graphics can be defined and adjusted. After which Images/graphics can placed into picture boxes and tweaked to satisfaction. As a whole, the finished layout can contain a multitude of elements positioned on the page and layered in ways that can allow graphic elements with text on top, tag lines for the images, pull quotes, headlines, and initial caps. The use of color in text and graphics (including gradients) is straightforward. Upon creating the digital version of the document, it can be saved and uploaded to the printer for proofing, and subsequently printed on a offset printer in various quantities.
I have a BFA in art and have had extensive experience drawing both still life and live models. My drawing classes consist of topics covered in a basic drawing class; drawing from observation, practicing gesture drawing techniques to master weight, balance, and proportion. Once we achieve satisfactory results, we, will then practice filling and shading of the forms to create the illusion of light falling upon a three-dimensional object. I will also cover how to create a successful composition by the precise placement of objects according to proximity, scale and contrast.
I've been using the Macintosh exclusively since 1987, and am well versed in Mac OS X as well as the iWork and iLife software suites. I can help set up your mail accounts and iChat sessions as well.

All told, I have over 20 years experience working with the Macintosh computer.
