Hi,

I'm Mike and I graduated Monmouth University with a BA in art and graphic design. I have been
published in the UK and have appeared on TV as a sketch artist. I have knowledge of Adobe Photoshop CS5, Adobe Illustrator CS5, Quark Xpress, Painter 12 and am proficient with a Bamboo Wacom tablet in both PC and MAC formats. I feel my skills would greatly help any students' growth.

In the past I have worked as a substitute teacher in the Holmdel school district from 2002-2006, so I have had experiences with students before and have tutored a few in painting and art. If you feel like I can help you move forward and improve your talent and skills, do not hesitate to contact me! Hope to hear from you soon!

Adobe InDesign

I took Adobe InDesign at Monmouth University, as all Adobe programs were needed for the Art degree. I also have knowledge in Dreaweaver. Both programs are for creating web sites.

I have been working with weights since I was 18. I was certified as a personal trainer by NESPA in 2005. I go to the gym about 4-5 times a week to stay fit and healthy.

Drawing

I work as a freelance artist currently and have been drawing since I was five. I can also paint and sculpt as well. I took drawing, painting and sculpting at Monmouth University.

Dreamweaver

I learned Dreamweaver in my internship from 2001-2002. I was working with a digital photographer and he taught me how to use the program. I used it for the full year I was interning and also use it at home. The photographer was Sean Smyth based in Belmar, NJ.

Fitness

I have been working with weights since I was 18. I was certified as a personal trainer by NESPA in 2005. I go to the gym about 4-5 times a week to stay fit and healthy. I also just started on the INSANITY programs, which emphasized a heavy cardio workout, no weights needed.

Spanish

Fluency in Spanish--reading and writing for over 30 years.
