I believe that one of the best parts of life is gathering information and knowledge, and I would like to be the positive influence that guides others on their path to higher education.
A little about me:
I was raised in a small town in south eastern Indiana. I attended public school through eighth grade before going to a small Catholic high school. There were only 60 kids in my graduating class! After eighteen years living in rural Indiana, I knew it was time for a change. I decided I was going to Chicago for college. I started at Loyola University as a chemistry major. By year two, I realized that advanced calculus and physics were not my forte, and I switched my major to graphic design/ studio art. I am very proud of my education at Loyola. Loyola's 'Core Curriculum' challenged me to study a wide range of subjects from philosophy, ethics, and religion to computer technology, music, and biology.
I met other students from all backgrounds and ethnicities, and made many friendships that I will probably maintain for the rest of my life. I was involved in volunteer programs and internships from Rogers Park to Armour Square, and I participated in many community events as a musician or exhibition artist.
Today, I am a guitarist in three bands, a freelance graphic designer, and a brand ambassador for a music company. One of my bands has had the great fortune of playing for audiences all over the United States, Canada, and Europe. While music and design are my main focus at the moment, I enjoy furthering my education on a wide variety of subjects. In my free time, I enjoy reading about subjects like chemistry, genetics, and cosmology. I also participate in free online classes from major universities in order to further my post-collegiate education.
I have great language skills, and I get along with almost everyone I meet. Let me know if you think I can help you achieve your learning goals!
I am a freelance graphic designer in Chicago with a degree in Visual Communication. I use Adobe Illustrator on a daily basis to create logos and other designs for my clients. I can teach you how to create professional looking designs and how to set them up for professional printing or web use. I can teach you how to use the tools to let your creativity out in this amazing program.
I have a degree in Visual Communications from Loyola University. Most of my major classes involved using Adobe Photoshop. As a freelance designer, I use photoshop on a daily basis to meet clients' needs. I am able to explain the tools and functions of Photoshop in an easy-to-understand manner. I am also able to aid you in specific techniques to achieve desired results.
Bible studies are a way to dissect the scripture in order to understand underlying themes and contexts of biblical stories. As a graduate of both a Franciscan high school, and a Jesuit University, I have taken a wide range of classes that focus on the Bible; namely classes on, New Testament, the Catechism, Philosophy of Religion, the Gospels, and the Pentateuch.
An introductory lesson to guitar would involve a demonstration of proper technique, and an explanation of note values and intervals. With time, open chords, barre chords, major and minor scales, and transcriptions of songs will become lesson topics. Advanced players will learn about modes, improvisation, soloing techniques, and chord substitutions. I have been playing guitar for 12 years and have had several different instructors. I am knowledgeable on most styles of guitar, including rock, jazz, country, blues, pop, and more.
