This program is helpful when designing print materials that work with text and images, such as brochures, articles and even books. There are many functions that are similar to Illustrator (such as vector drawing) but it is most helpful in page layout design. Style sheets create easy application of headers, subheaders, body text and other styles. InDesign also works simultaneously with other Adobe file types like Illustrator and Photoshop which can be updated in real time. I am currently designing a large format book with over 200 images and making it ready for print.
I have a BA in Anthropology and graduated summa cum laude. My focus was on cultural anthropology and it's methodologies. I have a basic understanding of biological anthropology, cultural linguistics and archeology. Anthropology has a lot to do with critical thinking and asking the right questions and my tutoring style is to help the student to draw their own answers and conclusions to whatever the assignment is asking.
I have an in-depth knowledge of Adobe InDesign and am currently working on a book using InDesign. I studied desktop publishing in community college with QuarkXpress and Pagemaker, then taught myself InDeign while working at a design studio for three years. My experience with desktop publishing spans 10 years and I can even use certain word processors as desktop publishers, such as Microsoft Word.

Email, internet, internet set up, disk cleanup and utility, file organization, Microsoft: Word Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook, Adobe: Acrobat Pro, InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, expertise in iPhoto, iTunes, and all basic programs installed on OS X, knowledge of program installation and uninstaller, printer set up and troubleshooting, faxing, web design (with editable templates), and ability to troubleshoot most basic and intermediate computer software and hardware issues.
I am a graphic designer and have been working on the Mac OS platform for 10 years. I can troubleshoot minor software and hardware issues. I am extremely familiar with the user end of the operating system.
I heavily rely on Excel in all of my office management jobs to create invoices, sales receipts, data entry templates, scheduling charts and searchable lists. For example, I created a detailed Excel spreadsheet of license contracts and their corresponding catalog numbers resulting in faster allocation of royalties to artists at Rounder Records. I also implemented formulas such that one could plug in specific numbers and the data template would instantly make several calculations, which increased the speed of allocation of said royalties by 75%.
