Full Sail University (Computer Animation)
I have studied in 2d and 3d software but have been most active in 2d. I have taught college-level Photoshop, 3ds Max, CAD and Portfolio. I have been doing graphic design for different industries including games, film, print, car wraps and t-shirts for over 10 years now. I haven't gotten a teaching degree because I have not found an area and college where I would want to move to that would make the additional debt worth going back to school. I have already taught for years at an unaccredited college. I will expand my teaching on this site once I see I can get somewhere. Some of my skills have gotten rusty having not been used much. I can always get back into some of the software if this site does me well.
I have experience in creation of logos and large art pieces. I have a firm understanding of vector files and objects and can create any shape or gradient or color blend I need to create near realistic images. Also, I'm well versed in use of Spot colors for screen printing separations and can easily go between other Adobe software and Illustrator.
I have been a talented sketch artist my whole life with a natural grasp of perspective, shading, lighting, color, tone, motion and so on. I have done character design for almost 30 years and am well versed in both basic and advanced sketch techniques. My talent lies in my mathematic understanding that allows me to tap into the Greek practices of advanced art with scales, proportions and geometry. I am capable of training others to utilize these ancient techniques starting with the basics.
I have Aspergers myself and have come a very long way dealing with it as a social and educational challenge. I have years of experience working with other students with the syndrome both when I was a student and teacher. I have done a lot of studying on the subject and know a lot of techniques to turn what others would label a disadvantage into an advantage. I have grown to be very well spoken, social, independent and even funny. I am in a very stable relationship with a woman who also has Aspergers and I was the very first person to graduate from Full Sail University with Aspergers. Not only was I the first to graduate but I did it at the top of my class with honors.
I am a very patient teacher who has taught students effectively from the ages of 20-65. I am a firm believer in learning skills outside of a traditional college and while I am looking at making some money here, I don't intend to take advantage of the position. I ultimately want to see my services grow as I am finding it very difficult to save up money on the hourly wages found in my very poor location. The more successful I get here, the more I can offer my students as far as creative tutorials, materials and software. I have studied in 2d and 3d software but have been most active in 2d. I have taught college-level Photoshop, 3ds Max, CAD and Portfolio.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have been a graphic designer for 10 years using primarily Photoshop and Illustrator. I have worked in many industries, primarily in the commercial print (business cards, invitations, programs, advertisements, envelopes and booklets) and t-shirt design (vector and raster designing, color separation and the whole screen printing process). I am currently a senior graphics manager at a commercial print shop and have my own line of custom designed t-shirts. I know more than just what can be found on the test; I have street knowledge of how the graphic design industry works.
