About Ephraim

I have worked for the government and private organizations as a Spanish interpreter. I can coach you or help you with literature, analytical writing, creative writing, or technical writing in both, Spanish and English. I can also help you develop speeches or provide feedback and tips to become a better communicator, presenter, or salesperson, also in both languages.

Some related areas of expertise include research writing for business related subjects, business plans, or persuasive letters. As a business and language educator, I practice these skills, teach these skills, and grade these skills in others. I can help with you in any of the following business related courses and I have extensive material for the following topics: marketing, management, economics, entrepreneurship, and the like. I have an MBA and I have almost completed a doctorate program in business.

Other skills I have (on the artistic side) are Photography, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and the guitar. I worked for nearly a decade for a naval publication as a photojournalist and graphic artist producing magazine covers and art work. I have received many naval awards for photography excellence and continue to sell art and services to others.

Music has been one of my primary hobbies since I was eight years old. I play the guitar, bass guitar, and drums since I was very young, but I dedicate most of my time to the guitar. I play chord progression, melodies, and lead. I can help you play by ear almost any type of music.

Guitar

I studied the classic guitar for four years with a great instructor. After completing my study of advanced popular music, in 1983, I join several church music bands. I joined the military service and begin practicing and composing music as a soloist. I compose primarily classic, jazz, and bossanova music, but I can play any type of music professionally, from opera to metal. I have trained mostly by playing by ear, although, I can read chord tablets competently. I currently play the bass and electric guitar in a church group, and occasionally receive an invitation to play at fancy dinners, parties, or smaller bands during the holidays.

During 2011-2013 I taught Photography and Visual Technology at a local High School to more than 125 students. Some of those students have been inspired to open their own businesses or to seek higher education in the Photography field. I currently hold a provisional teacher's credential for Art and Entertainment, which was a requirement to teach photography at Santa Ynez High School. I have more than 10 letters of references from clients or employers attesting to the quality, reliability, or technical expertise of my photography skills.
