About Simon

Hi my name is Simon and I'm originally from the UK so please excuse the strange accent.
I have been working in the graphics field in various industries for over 20 years, and started using Photoshop at version 5.5. I got my start working at a printing company and then quickly moved on into web design. For the past 10 years I have been working in the automotive materials industry creating textures and prints for car interiors at the OEM level. In my spare time, I enjoy photography and playing music, also having experience teaching guitar.

I am excited to share my knowledge of Photoshop and Illustrator from a large variety of applications, so that I can help others in realizing how powerful a tool the software is, and the many ways a task can be accomplished. My goal is not only to help students work through their graphics projects, but to teach best practices, the background fundamentals and also setting up the software to function optimally.

In addition, I have experience with Adobe Creative Suite as a whole, and have been using a plethora of graphics and office related software in a business environment for 2 decades. I have often been called upon to teach colleagues and new hires and in addition create training documents in a variety of subjects.

Thank you for looking at my profile, and please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, or to set up a tutoring session.

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 been using Illustrator professionally for over 10 years. I have a lot of experience converting bitmap data to vectors for screen printing, recreating old logos to vector format and creating diagrams and illustrations for a variety of print and web output formats.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been using Photoshop for over 20 years, in various different concentrations. I have worked in the printing industry, web design, texture and print creation for the automotive industry, and also enjoy photography in my spare time. I attended Photoshop World in 2008 and 2012 along with a number of day-long seminars concentrating on different Photoshop related subjects.

Microsoft Excel

Throughout my 20 year career I have used Excel for a great deal of data analysis, manipulation or project tracking. I have created many macros in order to automate formatting repetitive data sets saving hours of valuable time.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Throughout my 20 year career I have used Powerpoint for both corporate presentations and training slideshows. My strength in teaching this particular software is knowing how it reacts on different computers and how to ensure that the presentation you design, looks the same way across all platforms.
