About Aaron

I have a BFA in Computer Art and a MA in Broadcast Design & Motiongraphics. With those degrees I have been creating, producing and editing TV commercials and web videos for over 8 years.

I am a Branding and Production professional producing TV Commercials and Ad Campaigns for both print and digital media. I have been doing this for around 18 years now and I love what I do. If you are a student looking to get a jump start on college, a business professional who needs to learn photoshop or another design program for work, or an industry professional who would like to improve their skill sets please email me.

I offer private one on one classes either at my home office or I will travel to you if you have the appropriate computer and software. Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Final Cut Pro are some of the software that I can help you with. If you need to learn how to create a brochure or something specific on the computer for work let me know so I can customize class sessions around the skills needed to learn and create what you want. If you are a student that would like to improve their portfolio for college, maybe develop a logo and some business cards for self promotion I can design a class specifically for you too.

Classes can be as technical and or creative as you want. Classes average 3 hours a class and can range from 1 to 10 classes depending on what your request.

I love to teach. I have been tutoring for years. I make learning fun and easy by taking you step by step through all the tools in the program before breaking down techniques and giving you sample projects to complete. Once we get through how the tools work and you have a strong understanding of them we can then use what you have learned and apply it to a real project. I recommend taking no less then 3/4 classes but encourage 10 to establish a strong foundation of each program. The more you know the more you can create and with time you will get better-- I guarantee it.

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 Illustrator

I have almost two decades of experience using Illustrator in the design industry.

Desktop Publishing

I have a BFA in Computer Art and an MA in Broadcast Design and Motion Graphics from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I have over 15 years of experience with desktop publishing using programs like Photoshop, Illustrator and In-Design to design and prepare files for the printer. File size, resolution and file color settings are important to know before printing as True Black for example can print light, dark or off color depending on the machines used. A discussion with the printer before hand to find out how the printers run as well as proofs are important to keep colors on brand and visually correct. Never go by color settings 100% in any software. Using pantone colors do help regulate accuracy with colors used during the design to printing process.

Graphic Design

I have a BFA in Computer Art and a MA in Broadcast Design & Motiongraphics. With those degrees I have been designing print and digital media since 1999. I understand how to set and prepare working files for printing as well as resize and reformat for posting to web.

Macintosh

I have been working with macintosh for over two decades. I have two degrees that support my years doing graphics design, social communications, video editing, and branding all on a mac. I own an iMac and a MacBook Air using OS X (Version 10.10). I have external hard drive that are formatted just for MAC and some that are formatted to work on both MAC and PC for project that require teamwork outside my environment. I also own an iPhone 6 plus and they are all synced together. ( My address book, photos, music and emails).

Microsoft Outlook

I use outlook and other email software on my computer for well over a decade. Setting up outlook is the same as setting up any other email software. First you need to know what kind of email do you have when setting up a new account. Is it gmail, yahoo, business, etc. Second what your login and password is. Third you need to know what your incoming and outgoing mail server is. (Example would be mail.comcast.net) Once all that is done and you run a test to see if it's connected you can begin to set up folders and organize incoming and archived emails.

Tennis

I have been playing since I was 5 years old. I played 1st player on my high school team and third and second player in college. My parents put in a tennis court in my back yard growing up so we could train. It's a ton of fun. I have three rackets and a basket full of balls. All I need is someone to play with.

Video Production

I have a BFA in Computer Art and a MA in Broadcast Design & Motiongraphics. With those degrees I have been creating, producing and editing TV commercials and web videos for over 8 years. I scout locations for production, design and create concepts for shooting, write scripts, direct, animate and edit deliverables ranging from 30/60 second TV commercials, 30 minute Info TV shows, and web videos of any length. All video gets a graphics toolbox designed for each client or ad campaign. This consists of animated logo open, animated logo with call to action close, lower thirds, mortise, bug, and transitions. These assets increase brand, visual, informational and design value and can be used quickly to create more videos and commercials.

Web Design

I have a BFA in Computer Art and a MA in Broadcast Design & Motiongraphics. With those degrees I have been designing for digital media since 1999. I understand how to design for the web, slice art work and prepare graphics so they view correctly. I understand html and how to set up hosting as well as registering a domain name. I will walk the student through the whole process of designing a custom website to posting it live. I will also teach a student how to design graphics for wordpress or html templates so they can manage the backend without knowing a ton of code.
