About Richard


Bio

Working out of my in-home studio, I have worked with several students (ages ranging from 18 to 40) plus going to their homes to tudor.

Working out of my in-home studio, I have worked with several students (ages ranging from 18 to 40) plus going to their homes to tudor. My tutoring/teaching experience over the years, in general has been one-on-one. But, also being the senior art director at many different advertising agencies, teaching and overseeing the progress of the workers was a regular daily situation. The transference of information, giving demonstrations and teaching is part of being an art director.

Some of my work background:
Created materials for numerous products in diverse industries (manufacturing, service and retail). Companies included The First American Financial Corporation, Epson, Avery Dennison, Jeffrey Court, Brook Furniture, Albertson’s, Standard Brands, Adair, Health Valley, Valu-Rite and CBS among others. Products included electronics, furniture, housewares, automotive, sporting goods, food, medical supplies, pet products and art supplies, to name a few.

With years of experience in the advertising business, printing, and Senior Art Director, and management in the graphic field, I offer knowledge, talent and ability.
