Ringling college of art and design (Graphic Design)
As a 17- year creative professional in both the graphic design and photography industries, I have a vast knowledge base that I would love to share with those that are breaking into these mediums, and have the desire to learn in a fun, relaxed and personalized atmosphere. We will work on whatever it is you want to learn, and whatever pace you want to learn it. In other words, no pressure!
We can meet up just about anywhere in the KC area, or at your home if its a computer tutoring session. (Unless of course, its a laptop, and you want to meet at a Starbucks or something.) If it's a photography session, we can pick a location that best suits whatever the topic is. The point is, no one wants to learn in an uncomfortable environment, so it's entirely up to you!
I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.
I have 20 Years extensive experience in Photoshop in image creation, manipulation, compositing, retouch, color correction, etc.
I received my BFA in Graphic and Interactive Communication from the Ringling College of Art & Design. Additionally, I have been working as a professional designer for Hallmark Cards, Inc. for 15 years. I have not taught formally, but I have always been the go-to guy to help out people when an issue would arise at work, or back in my school days.
I have been using Macs almost exclusively for 20 years. (8-10 hours a day). I have plenty of experience in both the Mac OS and iOS platforms. This includes general troubleshooting as well.
I have a BA in Cinematography from the University of South Florida. (Cinema shares many of the same technical qualifications as photography). I also worked for Herb Booth Studio, a commercial photography studio in Sarasota, Florida, as the Digital Imaging Supervisor. I have been an avid shooter for many years. I love the technical side of digital photography, and stay current on the latest issues and products.
