Adobe Illustrator

I've used Adobe Illustrator for graphic design and over a dozen years. I started with Illustrator 8.0 and currently use Illustrator CS6 20-30 hours per week.

Adobe InDesign

I started using PageMaker in 1990, and transitioned to InDesign in 2002. I have edited approximately 50 magazine issues, as well as industry reports utilizing InDesign.

Adobe Photoshop

I've used Photoshop for graphic design and photography for over two decades.

I started with Photoshop 3 and currently use Photoshop CS6 20-30 hours per week.

I utilize Photoshop both for photo optimization and for creative projects utilizing photos.

Chess

My OTB rating hovers around the low expert high class A level. I've played several thousand tournament games, coached students, edited four chess books, and almost 50 issues of NW Chess magazine. I'm a fun instructor with a firm grasp of the game.

Desktop Publishing

I have extensive experience in PageMaker and InDesign, having edited/layed out 50+ magazine issues, multiple catalogs and legislative reports as well as several books. In addition I have a digital design degree, and have also won awards in magazine layout.

Photography

I’ve been interested in photography for the past twenty years, starting when I worked for various magazines which required in house photography. I gladly jumped to digital cameras as soon as they hit the market, preferring to "dump the darkroom" and put my Photoshop experience (version 3 to CS6) to use.

I’ve had extensive experience in event, fine art, portrait, product, sports, senior and wedding photography. I have the very highest quality lighting equipment and Canon cameras.

I have a design degree from Pierce College, and a Photography Certificate from the University of Washington.

I've been published in various magazines and newspapers throughout the country.
