I'm an active user of InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, in5 from Ajar Productions and Muse for Freelance Projects.

I create brochures, catalogs, digital documents, web sites, logos, t-shirt graphics and photo collages. From my diverse graphic design freelance work, I bring a wealth of real-world knowledge into the classroom.

I truly enjoy teaching both the basics to the emerging designer as well as tips and tricks to the advanced power users in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.

 

I am honored to be a speaker at the
 Creative Pro Conference held in New Orleans, June 4-8 2018!
