The unique mix of an expert creator and technical personality, an artist with a process approach to teaching and learning. With both a B.S. degree and technical training, I value the experience from tech training and creative work for over 20 years. Learning HOW to learn and learning by doing, have been my greatest teaching and personal development. I work with all ages, and your unique learning style, understanding that each person holds on to certain things passionately, and may just not care about others. There is a way to bridge the gap in learning any subject through your unique learning ability.
A Kinesthetic learner means I am learn something by engaging my body or hands. So I know a student that seems distracted, may simply be engaged in learning their own way. Let's start with HOW you learn. The patience comes through experience and helps me relate to people who struggle to get information from a book or a video that is not personal.
Sharing the excitement for life and for learning is why I am here. Tell me about yourself, how I can relate, your hopes and dreams for learning, and how you got here. I've been an artist, camp director, tutor, trail guide, photographer, athletics director, computer instructor, foster parent, publisher, marketer, teacher and more. Now I work as Creative Director, and Marketing strategist, with a passion to teach, coach, train and help people succeed.
Daniel has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 3 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Exactly what I needed
Daniel is an excellent tutor. He listened to what I asked him to teach me, and then asked me how I would like to learn (watching him, doing it as he talked me through the steps, etc.). I really appreciated this as we all have different learning styles. He was patient and explained things clearly and slowly enough that I could make notes while he was talking. He tackled what I thought was going to be an agonizingly difficult task and made it very simple. I will definitely be reaching out for his help again in the future.Amy, 1 lesson with Daniel
Simply the best
Every question, every problem, every mistake I made corrected and future-proofed. Not only solved my existing problems but helped make templates to avoid issues in the future. Dead on perfect!Frank, 5 lessons with Daniel

Problem solving perfection
I asked for, and he delivered for. I was seriously struggling with some silly small things. Not only did he fix those things I now have a greater understanding of a much bigger and not silly thing. It was so much fun and so exciting to learn something new and so quickly.Dean, 2 lessons with Daniel

I have had tutors before in the past for adobe Photoshop and they left me frustrated and confused. I am happy to say that Daniel actually made everything flow and go smooth like butter. Daniel answered all of my questions and gave me that wow factor. I was shocked at the basics I did not know. I am looking forward to my second lesson. If you are sitting on the fence - check Daniel out!Yolanda, 1 lesson with Daniel
Professional, Caring, Insightful
Daniel is an expert in both communication and design. He taught me important principles in communication, including knowing your audience and the single overriding communication objective (SOCO). These principles are also applied in the design. On the design side, he introduced famous designers to me so that I can have concrete examples of how these designers apply techniques Daniel has taught me. He is both practical and knowledgeable, with deep insights into students' own personalities.Xinyue, 10 lessons with Daniel
