About Leslie

Effective graphic design disseminates information in the most concise, impressive way possible. From business cards to billboards, the ultimate goal of design is to capture the audience in less than a minute and then keep them engaged.

I have over 30 years experience in a broad range of industries. From cosmetic packaging and product development at Avon, to my current position at The Culinary Institute of America, my graphic design projects have ran the gamut.

I will teach Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator so that you master these incredibly powerful tools and use them to create effective, compelling design. All learning projects are inspired by my personal 'real world experiences'.

From thumbnails to print proofs, experience the real world of graphic design.

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

I have been using Adobe InDesign since CS3 released. Previous to InDesign I used Quark Xpress for many years. Now the Adobe Suite is my preferred software for the majority of my design projects. In my 30 year career I have upgraded computers and software continuously and am now working in CS6 on a Mac Tower with OS 10.8.
