I'm a screenwriter and enjoy telling a story through a 90 page screenplay or a single image. Experience in filmmaking and DSLR photography help to round out my skill-set. I’m a committed lifelong learner dedicated to developing my craft. I'm ready to teach as soon as you're ready to commit to learning.

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've been using the Adobe Creative Suite including Illustrator for over 10 years. I've taught Illustrator and typography classes on the high school and college level. I have a thorough understanding of where Illustrator fits into the design methodology of the Creative Suite.

Adobe InDesign

I've been using the program for 5+ years. I've used it in a professional environment to create ads for the newspapers. I've also used InDesign in the creation of several manuals and children's books. I understand how InDesign fits into the Suite of Adobe products.

Adobe Lightroom

I've been using Lightroom for 3 years and have used the Adobe Creative Suite for over 10. I have a thorough understanding of when to use Lightroom and when its time to pull out Photoshop. Lightroom is an amazing program for processing hundreds of images quickly and I'd love to show you a few secrets so you can get from behind the keyboard and get out there and take some more pictures.

Adobe Photoshop

I love Photoshop! I've used this program for over 10 years, practically on a daily basis. This program is always growing and there is always more to learn. I've taught Photoshop on a high school and/or college level for over 5 years.

Desktop Publishing

I've been designing flyers, brochures, and print material for over 15 years. I've been using the Adobe Suite of applications over that time as well as several other design programs and plugins. Teaching classes on design and typography using Photoshop and Illustrator on a high school and college level has allowed me to stay up to date on the subject of desktop publishing.

General Computer

I'm an expert on both the Windows and Mac platforms. I can help you troubleshoot issues, get you up and running online, show you how to get rid of viruses, or help you to clean up your computer.

Graphic Design

I've taught an After Effects class at Baker College on and off for eight years. I've also used this program on several real world projects. I have extensive experience in the Adobe Suite and have taught graphic design classes.

Maya

I've been using 3D software for well over 5 years. I've taught in the 3D department at Baker College for 5 years. I've attended workshops to learn new skills. I wish you all would include 3DSMax as a skill as well. I'm thorough in Maya but I'm a 3DSMax expert.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I've been using PowerPoint for well over 10 years. I can help you to integrate photos, videos, audio and anything else you want into your PowerPoint presentation. I'm also an expert in Prezi, a web based presentation software if you're looking to create a something with a little extra flair.

Microsoft Word

I've been using Microsoft Word for as long as I can remember. I'm current in all versions of the program. Word is not a difficult program to learn, but there are some secrets that help you to get your work done faster and some little used extra features to create a multimedia rich document that I can tell you all about.

Video Production

I majored in film and video studies at the University of Michigan. I've produced and edited documentaries, music videos, commercials and narrative films. I specialize in screenwriting. I've taught Digital Video Production at Baker College for over 5 years.
