About Adam

Hi!

My name is Adam, and I've been in the graphic design and computer industries for well over a decade throughout multiple positions and roles allowing me to flex my creative and technical strength. Now I want to share some of that strength with you!

Creative Background:

I've held graphic design careers in 4 different companies over the last decade, and had very different roles with each. My creative expertise is bulleted below:

- page layout
- digital illustration
- photo editing
- marketing

I'm very familiar with most Adobe applications, with specific expertise in InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat Professional, and PhotoShop. I'm also well versed in any operating system that these applications support.

TECHNICAL BACKGROUND

Technology is a huge passion of mine and I've spent most of my life knowing this. I worked for Apple for 7 years and trained people everyday on how to use Macs, iPhones, iPads, iPods, or any other associated Apple technology, services or software. I loved working there, and want to continue to help people realize the capabilities of their technology by helping wherever I can. I can help with troubleshooting technical issues, finding solutions to software problems, or training in any software, services or hardware field.

Specific software and services may include, but are not limited to:
- iPhoto
- iMovie
- Word
- PowerPoint
- Mac OS X operating systems, and all software included with a Mac
- Adobe InDesign
- Adobe Illustrator
- Adobe Photoshop

Hopefully from the above you can tell that I'd love to support you in growing with whatever your technical or creative needs may be!

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

InDesign is the Adobe Creative Suite application that I use the most often at my day-to-day job. I'm consistently designing templates for various needs, pulling together short jobaids and handouts, and also creating long book and workbook-like materials to support and facilitate training resources. I am an expert at the latest Creative Suite platform, Adobe Creative Cloud, and would love to share my knowledge and facilitate the education of others around this application!

Desktop Publishing

I graduated in 2007 from the new England Institute of Art and Technology in Boston, MA with a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design. My design career, my current job and many of my previous jobs have focused on desktop publishing. I work through all of the Adobe Creative Suite apps to bring collaborative and well designed materials to fruition, and do so by utilizing many desktop publisher resources.

General Computer

I have worked for Apple for many years, and as an Apple employee I have proficient and thorough knowledge for advanced users wanting to learn more or a new Apple user wanting to simply get to know their Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod. I have knowledge in the basic and advanced applications on all of these devices as well as the services that all of these devices can utilize to work well together. As a long time Apple user and employee I can tell you that I have seen a very diverse array of learning styles and I have the capability to accommodate to every single one. Please let me know how I can help you today!

Graphic Design

I graduated in 2007 from the new England Institute of Art and Technology in Boston, MA with a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design. With this degree I've held many graphic design jobs, as well as my own freelance jobs on my own time and I've built a portfolio of great packaging design, environmental design, marketing, type design and more. I've known since I was 14 that I have wanted to be a graphic designer for a living, and took countless design-related classes in high school to prove to myself that was the direction I wanted to go. After graduating college, I've never thought twice about my decision!

Macintosh

My experience in Macintosh, and all things Mac/Apple related may be my most knowledgeable subject as I worked for Apple for over 6 years. In my career at Apple my job was to educate individuals on Mac OS X, and how it can work in their lives. I regularly supported technical issues, teaching people how to get the most out of their Mac and other Apple products, and helped people decide how their technical lifestyle might best work for them.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I'm incredibly proficient and well-versed in Microsoft PowerPoint. I've created templates for personal use and professional used presentations, have taught myself how to design intricate advanced animations and not the software very well in and out.

Microsoft Windows

As someone who has supported cross-platform technology related requests over the past 10 years, Microsoft Windows operating systems have been some of the most common requests. Getting hands on time with Windows in in depth ways has been more and more frequent as I've worked with it on a day-to-day basis for the better part of 10 years. I'm fluent in the most recent operating systems and services, their functionalities and inner-workings.

Photography

Photography is much more a passion and a hobby than something I do for a living, but given that I've had several of my photographs used in publications, I'd like to say that I'm pretty good at it. As far as education in the photography field is concerned, I've taken several semesters of digital photography in college, a few classes on darkroom production and developing photography, and have been in yearbook classes and advanced PhotoShop classes on countless occasions. I always go out of my way to get that special shot, and my favorite subject is definitely nature. Architecture is a close second as my favorite subject as I've always love working the angles of buildings into my photos uniquely.
