I am a seasoned, enthusiastic and visionary professional in the Graphic Arts industry. I have worked in publishing for several years and created a variety of print advertisements. Currently, I am developing online ads using Adobe Flash. I am an enthusiast for all things Adobe but my specialty lies in both Photoshop and Illustrator.
My own education in these programs is always evolving. To share this knowledge, I have been fortunate enough to have developed a continuing education curriculum for my fellow artist employees at the daily publication where I work. My fellow designer coworkers are wonderful, talented people but they have limited attention spans when it comes to learning new things. For them I developed "Short Attention Span Theater". I have created detailed instructions for a variety of design effects using Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.
These programs are a lot of fun to work with. Whether you're interested in learning shortcuts to work more quickly and smoothly, restore and correct photographs, create interesting interactive documents, basic animation or a zillion other possibilities of uses with these programs I can help.
I am also a copywriter,editor,proofreader and photographer.
