Hi! I am TheChad.
When I worked at apple they dubbed me a Genius and a Creative, but that seems a bit pretentious to toss around in polite conversation.
I'm a certified nerd, a tech fanatic and a drinker of the apple Kool aid.
I am more than a fan though, I come with quite a few certifications to teach both simple and complex programs alike (12 in total, allowing me to teach folks and even trainers, see the exhaustive list to the right).
We all have talents and skills, mine intersect at technology and teaching. I have taught seniors who have never held a mouse in their hand how to navigate their computer without having to call their grandchild every time (hey, even you're a step past that!).
I have also taught professionals in the fields of graphic design and video production the intricacies of their tools... and everything in between.
I have done both one to one training and group classes for children and adults. I like one on one because it allows us to set goals for you as an individual and work towards them. If you want to learn how to edit portraits of your family, but don't give a hoot about landscapes, ok. If you want to learn InDesign to help your children publish their self illustrated books, but have no other purpose for it, that's cool too.
We can set up an initial meeting and figure that out, set goals and timelines. We will do projects that matter to you, that you can take home and share with your family, that you can be proud of. And maybe after we finish learning iPhoto, you will have discovered a new passion and want to tackle something a bit tougher, and more rewarding like aperture or photoshop. It's all up to you, at your pace and focused on your priorities.
And I gotta tell you, it's gonna be fun.
