About Greg

Learn Adobe Creative Cloud for print/web as well as Wordpress from a highly experienced tutor, a tutor who is a graphic design and web design Instructor at Duke University, Durham Tech College and the Durham Tech Small Business Center in (obviously) Durham, NC.

Extensive real-world, hands-on agency, corporate and design studio experience using and now teaching Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver. Also Wordpress and Web Page Design (HTML/CSS).

Before turning to teaching, I worked in high-level positions in both design and marketing as an agency Art Director at Stackpole & Partners Advertising in Boston, and as Senior Graphic Designer at AT&T Broadband Northeast as well as at Spectrum Boston, a top design studio. And ss Marketing Director at the Museum of Life and Science here in Durham.

My portfolio is full of high-performance, high-ROI marketing and graphic design work for print and web— branding, advertising, direct marketing, direct mail, sales collateral, corporate identity, logo design, publication design, website design, landing page design and optimization, email marketing, e-newsletters and more.

As an Instructor I create my own online, step-by-step tutorials which I also use for WyzAnt tutoring, tutorials which are always available to my students.

Art degree in Graphic Design and Advertising Design from the Art Institute of Atlanta.

Frankly teaching and tutoring is just so much more fun and rewarding than what I used to do!

Little Known Fact: I have a Masters Degree in International Relations, worked in Tokyo for five years and wrote a critically acclaimed book on doing business with the Japanese (currently 1,896,727th on Amazon).

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 experience teaching Adobe Creative Suite Illustrator CS5 at Durham Technical College.

Adobe InDesign

I have used Adobe InDesign for over ten year, replacing the page layout program all graphic designers loved to hate QuarkXPress. Currently I am teaching Adobe InDesign CS 5 at Durham Technical College in Durham, NC.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been Teaching Adobe Photoshop for over ten years, most recently at a technical community college. I have developed extensive online class notes and tutorials to go with teaching. I have over 15 years experience using Photoshop, including positions as Senior Graphic Designer at AT&T Broadband Northeast and a top Boston design studio. I have extensive experience using Photoshop in creative development of marketing and advertising campaigns. I was agency Art Director at an advertising company outside of Boston. I have a professional art degree in Visual Communications and Advertising Design from the Art Institute of Atlanta.

Desktop Publishing

I have been doing desktop publishing for some 20 years. Currently I am teaching Adobe Creative Suite CS5, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Acrobat at Durham Technical College in Durham, NC

Dreamweaver

I have been a web designer for over 10 years using Adobe Dreamweaver among other web tools like HTML and CSS. Currently I am teaching Adobe Dreamweaver CS 5 at Durham Technical College in Durham, NC.

Graphic Design

My design and creative experience includes high-profile positions as Senior Graphic Designer at AT&T Broadband and also at Spectrum Boston, a top design studio. Also positions as agency Art Director at Stackpole & Partners Advertising in Boston, and Marketing Director at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham, NC.

I have extensive experience teaching Adobe Creative Cloud Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver as well as Web Page Design using CSS and HTML, currently 8 years at Durham Technical College. Also I teach Wordpress at Durham Tech and Duke University.

My art degree is in Graphic and Advertising Design from the Art Institute of Atlanta.

Marketing

I've been an agency art director and marketing director and a senior graphic designer. Add in copywriting. Multiply by high-level artistic and technical skills for both print and electronic media. And the result is a very multitalented marketing and design professional with a rare combination of skills who generates high-performance results.

Technically, I teach Adobe Creative Suite, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, InDesign, and Illustrator as well as Web Page Design using HTML and CSS at Durham Technical College.

My passion is helping companies or organizations grow by giving meaning to your brand, distinguishing it and engaging your customers—connecting with them on an emotional level in ways that develop long-term customer relationships.

When I create and design I never "decorate," to just make things look pretty. Nor do I or waste your valuable resources by merely attracting attention in the name of brand awareness (just watch any Direct TV ad for example). Awareness and attention do not necessarily equal trust. Branding is all about trust, emotion and passion. When I do your branding and marketing it will establish and build trust with your customers so they feel an a powerful emotional attachment to your company.

The best part of my job is when the numbers come in, showing clearly how your marketing investment is driving your growth and adding to your bottom line. For example as Marketing Director at the Museum of Life and Science:

- Exceeded marketing performance goals by an average of over 30%.
- 800% ROI on "Carolina Parent" magazine advertising campaign.
- 11% response rate yielding 650% ROI on direct marketing campaign to Triangle area daycares.
- 320% ROI on email marketing campaign, Durham Bulls Bullet Points.

Web Design

I am an art director, marketing director, graphic designer and web designer by trade. At a Tech school, I currently teach the classes Web Page Design (HTML and CSS coding). Adobe Dreamweaver, Wordpress Websites that Sell, and Adobe Photoshop.
