About Tom

I have worked for a Community College as a Macintosh technician in the graphic arts area for 15 years. I have taught classes on Macintosh fundamentals as well as various Adobe products. I have repaired Macintosh computers as well as installed complete labs of computers. I have a degree in Graphic Arts. The software I was taught is Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Premier, and QuarkXPress. I also have experience with FinalCut Pro.

I was trained to install software on the Apple Macintosh computer. I have experience with large format printers, scanners, and what is known as Electronic Pre press production. I was charged with the repair and installation of the Macintosh labs in the classrooms. I have used these computers for 15 years.

I have worked for various printing companies using the Adobe software.
