I'm a professional remote freelance graphic designer, located in Southern California, with over 20 years experience in advertising and marketing. I'm fast, organized, well-versed and creative with expert level Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator skills.

Professional, yet easy going, I adhere to schedules like my career depends on it. Creating images and exercising typography, I moved through the ranks from Jr. Art Director to Creative Director working with agencies and brands you're familiar with. My artwork has been approved and used to market Fortune 500 Companies in industries such as; Food & Grocery, Oil & Energy, Auto Racing, Tax & Finance, Gaming & Casinos, Municipalities/Tourism, Real Estate Developers, and other Retail businesses, large and small.

From conception to publication, in both print and digital media, I understand and exceed the standards. Aside from being an expert with Photoshop and Illustrator, I'm also highly proficient in Adobe Indesign and Power Point software on both PC and Mac platforms.

Originally from Houston, I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, and hold a BA in Visual Communication Design. I've also completed multiple Executive/Management training seminars and weekend software courses such as 'Photoshop WOW' and Rogen Training.

I've been working as an Art Director (Glorified Graphic Designer) for the last 25 years. I work in InDesign on a regular basis building ads, brochures and other multi-page documents where InDesign is the preferred software. In addition, I've tutored multiple students in InDesign with great success. InDesign is basically a 'cousin' to Adobe Illustrator, another vector based application from Adobe.

I have worked as an Art Director in advertising agencies for the last 20+ years, starting as a Jr. Art Director and working my way to Creative Director. 4 years ago I left the 'Agency Life' to become a Remote Freelance Graphic Designer where I retain multiple accounts myself and work with other advertising agencies to insure they are able to retain clients using my graphic design work. I'm currently responsible for graphic design work, start to finish, for major brands around the globe.

Great tutor

Joe is knowledgeable and experienced in professional graphic design and is a good teacher as well! He has helped me work on some designs and to learn about Adobe Illustrator.

Nathan, 3 lessons with Joe

He was very patient, knowledgeable and encouraging.

Joe helped me to have a better understanding of how to make curves with the Pen tool in Adobe Illustrator. I will work with him again in the future if needed. I'd recommend him to others.

Nancy, 1 lesson with Joe

Super knowledgeable!

Joe is incredible. I was a little skeptical before the actual lesson, because I wasn’t sure if I was going to learn much. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I learned in the 1 hour and am so looking forward to my weekly sessions with him. Thanks so much, Joe!

Kelly, 3 lessons with Joe

Excellent communicator

Joe is practically perfect in every sense of the word. He really knows his stuff. It’s great working with him. I can’t wait till our next Ai and PS session.

Tina, 7 lessons with Joe

Simply the best!

Patient, caring and very competent. Helped me learn tools that made my project much more professional. Thanks for helping me on such short notice! Joes the best!

Jennie, 1 lesson with Joe

Great Teacher!

Joe did a great job teaching me how to modify documents in Illustrator to create an amazing proposal form. I am new to Illustrator and he was able to walk me through all of the short cuts to create and modify documents. I would highly recommend him!

Kevin, 1 lesson with Joe

Joe's a cool guy, knows his stuff and is an excellent communicator.

We reviewed IL patterns, distort and perspective and perspective in IL and PSD... It was a good session. Comparing the perspective cheats using the transform box in Photoshop and the 3D effects in Illustrator. We also touched on cropping tools in pathfinder and fumbled around with the pattern maker.

Go with Joe!

Joe and I had a great first lesson. He is professional and personal with his style of teaching. We went into detail whenever needed, and he had a good plan of direction for the lesson. I am already scheduling my next appointments. Thanks, Joe!

Josephine, 7 lessons with Joe

Really knowledgeable. very patient and stays on task!!

Helped me by directly answering very specific questions and addressing all immediate issues I had with the program. He was super helpful and explained each step, showed me shortcuts and listened and suggested more options to simplify any process.
