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.

Very Knowledgeable Photoshop tutor

Helped me very much in using selection tool methodology, layers, levels, and opacity sliders. A quick but patient tutor that is ready to go over again anything that you may not have grasped the first time.

Awesome!

Joe was a great teacher--very efficient and helpful in explaining the topic I needed help with and giving me some tips for shortcuts and ways to make my Photoshop life easier. Thank you!

Definitely Recommend Joe!

Joe was great to work with! He is very knowledgeable in Photoshop and has an easy-going personality! Joe and I worked on various projects together so I could learn how to use all of the different tools and effects. He was able to answer my questions, and tell me all the shortcuts for Windows while he was working on Mac! If I need more assistance in the future, I plan on going back to Joe!

Knowledgeable tutor

He was very patient, and willing to help me with anything I asked making sure I completely understood the concept. He helped me through my Adobe Illustrator assignments and confusions I encountered very thoroughly for a creative production graphic design class.

Excellent

Joe has been great! He has patiently and enthusiastically given my two boys, ages 10 and 12, website development lessons and also he has helped me with some design and website work I have needed to do for work. What an excellent tutor and person! Also very FUN to work with!

Fantastic experience

I needed some help with a few specific things I was trying to accomplish in Photoshop for my small business and Joe stepped right in to help review my progress so far and show me more efficient ways to work out what I was trying to do and picked up some small things I might have been doing wrong he went from explaining basics to more complex workflow operations with ease in a way I could grasp. I wasn’t sure what to expect as this was my first experience using Wyzant for a remote one on one tutorial and I will definitely be reaching out for more help.
