About Andrew

I have been working in the visual communication field since 1996, when I started working with a print shop creating small design projects and performing electronic pre-press while attending Northern Illinois University. After graduating from NIU with a BFA in Visual Communication, I honed my craft working with various agencies throughout the Chicago area working as a designer and art director. During the past several years, I have been working for myself with small agencies and clients that were in need of help with their marketing and design needs but couldn't afford the higher cost of an agency or the addition of more staff.

In 2007 I started substitute teaching for Woodstock School District 200 in Illinois. During this time, I discovered my own joy in passing along my knowledge and experience in design and photography to students who were contemplating studying the visual arts. It made me realize that I wish I had someone to do the same for me when I was younger that could be a mentor and go-to person for information and help from time to time.

The key strengths that I possess for success in this position include, but are not limited to, the following:
•PATIENCE - After 18 years of experience working with creatives, business people and students of varying personalities this has become one of my strongest traits!
•Confidence in working with creatives of all levels.
•Eagerness to teach as well as learn from those that I am working with.

I believe you will find me to be well-spoken, energetic, confident, and personable… the type of person that you will be able to rely on. I also feel my wide breadth of experience in the creative industry can give you the versatility to call on me in a number of contexts with confidence that the level of excellence you expect will be met.

Adobe Illustrator

I have been using Adobe Illustrator since version 5 in the Mid 90's.

Adobe InDesign

I have worked as a professional designer and photographer with agencies and for myself since 1998. I have been working with InDesign since it was first introduced in the early 2000s as a viable alternative to Quark. I have also taught students and workshops on InDesign over the past several years.

Adobe Lightroom

I have worked as a professional designer and photographer with agencies and for myself since 1998. I have also taught workshops on photography to private students over the past several years. I have won several awards in photography, exhibited in solo and group exhibitions and have work on display in many private and public collections. I have been a user of Adobe Lightroom since version 2 was introduced in 2008.

Macintosh

I have been working on Macintosh computers since the early 90's when they were still working with very early operating systems such as MAC OS 3. Working on a Mac is very much second nature to me, as I have owned an operated several throughout my career and have learned to troubleshoot and repair errant systems. I currently own both a MacPro and Macbook Pro that I use in my professional life.
