About Colin

I've been a huge proponent of using seasonal and local food since before I became a chef (graduated from the California Culinary Academy in 2003). I have worked events as a personal chef for a small household to weddings and other events with 60-300 guests.

I have practiced several forms of chi gong and tai chi over the past nine years - mainly from the Mantak Chias school of work, but also Soaring Crane Medicinal Chi Kung, and Pai Lum family style kung fu.

I've been working as a freelance photographer since this last summer, and during the fall and winter as a photographer's assistant. However, I have been taking photos all of my life in film and digital and am experienced in Photoshop and other photo editing programs.

I'm a very holistic style teacher and adapt my style of teaching to my students personality. We'll figure out what works best for you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe InDesign

I was trained in the use of Adobe InDesign at Clark University in 2008. Since then I have continued to use InDeisgn several times a year to design calendars, books, brochures, and even cover letters and resumes.

Adobe Photoshop

I use Photoshop and related tools daily in my constant practice as a freelance photographer. I have worked as an photographer for almost my entire life, and am currently teaching Photography classes to small groups and individuals in Juneau, AK. Coming back to New Haven, CT in the Fall.

Cooking

I am a associate chef certified from the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. I have worked for 5+ years as a private chef, caterer, line chef, and local food activist to help raise awareness and support for local food groups.

Martial Arts

I have studied Chi Gong for approximately 10 years now and am an associate instructor with the Universal Healing Dao. I also do energetic corrections to help my students release themselves from chronicle cycles of pain/failure in whatever area they are working on.

Photography

I have been a lifelong photographer and have been professionally trained in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, and in the use of Nikon DSLR at Clark University by Frank Armstrong and Rachel Loischild. Since then I have worked as a freelance photographer in non-profit, real estate, restaurant, travel, wildlife, wedding, and in portrait photography. I currently teach small groups of students and individuals photography in Juneau, AK. Coming back to New Haven in the fall!

Swell tutor! — I appreciated Colin's prompt appearance at our meeting location, his relaxed energy, and his multi-disciplinary understanding of my agenda. I also appreciated his expedient correspondence as well as his follow-up with answers to technical questions he couldn't provide during our session. I look forward to learning more from him! Bravo, Colin. ...
