About Dan

I like the creative process of exploring and looking at new things so my approach is have fun with the fundamentals. Once a degree of program knowledge is achieved, one can proceed to use his or her natural creative talent creative production and enjoyment. The Adobe Suite of creative programs contains amazing tools, easy to start learning, yet mastering takes years. It's like playing the guitar or the piano - getting started is easy; mastering takes time.

I have 16 years of experience with Photoshop, 14 years with Illustrator, 5 years with Quark and 6 years with InDesign. I have 16 years of experience as a pro photographer and have been using digital photography since 1996. I have taught at the New School in New York. My experience as a film director spans six plus years and I have a TV reel of infomercials as well as a couple short independent films shot with 35mm and video.
