About Robert

I've been blessed to have the ability to teach what I love to aspiring learners.

When I was 14 I taught a MS Flash class to my own teachers at Region 14. Through High School, I had a deep interest in classical guitar, I won guitar and talent competitions leading my travels to Boston MA to study at Berklee School of Music.

Upon return, I got a job at Best Buy which lead me to find a new love in photography. My father being a professional photographer made it easy for me to lead and teach the aspects of aperture. I quickly moved up to a trainer for Best Buy Stores in the Digital Imaging Department and moved my talents to production. I taught seminars on Adobe Photoshop and Photography often at the Abilene Public Library.

I'm currently working as an Audio Engineer for two local radio stations and am getting into sound production and podcasting. I'm working toward sharing my interests and talents with the world and tutoring helps keep me sharp and on top of the game.

I've taught many classes on Adobe Photoshop as well as given students the ability to learn a similar free program called GIMP. I've learned much of my photography from my Father who is a professional photographer who's had his natural wildlife photos shown in magazines and zoo exhibits, as well as his blue heron photos being remade by artists around the world.

I have experience as a troubleshooting expert with suddenlink communications and am the "go to guy" when it comes to solving most computing and networking issues as well as other hardware such as routers and switches.
