Thanks for visiting!
I am a designer specializing in digital illustration with over 20 years experience in the field. I have been teaching professionally since 2000 both in higher education and at professional training centers. I love educating others and sharing my passion for technology and design. This is my calling in life.
A self-proclaimed geek, my experience with publications, workflow and illustration enhances my credibility as an Adobe Certified Instructor and Adobe Creative Leader.
I have been a graphic designer and illustrator for more than 20 years. My love for illustration and design have carried over to the digital media and allow me to express myself creatively using new and exciting technologies.
