About Matt

I am a local to Orange County and studied at California State Fullerton. I graduated with a double major in graphic design and creative photography. I currently work at a production company as an on set photographer/ post production designer and also work with lighting/camera equipment. I have experience with the full array of Adobe creative suite as well as digital photography and printing. Part of my photo training was spending many hours developing and printing 35mm and large format film in a darkroom. I am also skilled in shooting video and editing in Adobe premier.

I have a high level of skill and experience working with Photoshop for image manipulation and photo retouching. I am also proficient in the workflow of combining elements created in Illustrator, Photoshop, AfterEffects and LightRoom to be used to build a complete layout that can be sent to a printer or used on the web.

Feel free to contact me, I enjoy talking about and sharing knowledge of what I do and the programs that I work with. I would love to help people learn to express their creativity through new mediums.

Adobe Illustrator

I have a bachelor's degree in graphic design from California State Fullerton. I am proficient with Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After effects, Premiere and Lightroom). I have 5 years working as a graphic designer and a post production designer for video. I can show students how to build graphic elements in one program and compile them in a second creating a fully realized layout. I am also knowledgeable in large format digital printing or setting up files to be correctly printed by a printing house. Can demonstrate how to take vector graphics and rasterize them for use in Photoshop and demonstrate workflow for animation.

Adobe InDesign

I have a bachelor's degree in graphic design from California State Fullerton. I am proficient with Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Lightroom). I have 4+ years working as a graphic designer and a post production designer. I can show students how to build graphic elements in one program and compile them in InDesign creating a fully realized layout. I am also knowledgeable in handling large projects that contain different spreads to be formatted correctly for digital printing or setting up files to be correctly printed off site by a printing house.

Adobe Lightroom

I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a bachelor's degree in creative photography and I am currently working at a production company as a on set photographer working with lighting and camera equipment. I worked for two years as a product photographer in the motorcycle industry and have extensive experience working in digital photography and printing. I can show students how to import files into Lightroom, color correct images and adjust exposures to allow them to produce the image aesthetic they are looking for.

Adobe Photoshop

I have two bachelor's degrees, one in graphic design and a second in creative photography. Both of these fields use Photoshop but require different workflows and skill set that I am proficient in. I have 4+ years working as a graphic designer and a post production designer for video.
