"I have a lifetime of experience to share, and I'm ready to start sharing it! In my career I have been a graphic designer, Art Director, Macintosh IT Director, Web Designer, and Front-End Web Developer, and in each capacity I've had to train others. My father used to say "I've forgotten more than you know", and there's some truth to that comment about the wisdom of years.

"I have a lifetime of experience to share, and I'm ready to start sharing it! In my career I have been a graphic designer, Art Director, Macintosh IT Director, Web Designer, and Front-End Web Developer, and in each capacity I've had to train others. My father used to say "I've forgotten more than you know", and there's some truth to that comment about the wisdom of years.

So, if you have a desire to learn graphic design and design apps (like Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator), coding and web development (HTML, CSS, jQuery, Git), even some tips on *how* to learn, I would love an opportunity to discuss what you would like to accomplish and how I could help you get there. I live for the "lightbulb moment"… that moment when a person suddenly "gets it" and the topic goes from being a blurred mess to coming into sharp focus.

I have been using Photoshop since before it was Photoshop! Back in 1989, Photoshop was released as "Barneyscan" and was a beast to work in compared to today. In the early 1990's I was a member of a small online Photoshop community led by then-Photoshop-guru Kai Krause where we shared and experimented with the latest and greatest techniques, especially ways to simulate layers when Photoshop had none. In short, I have worked with every version of Photoshop since 1989, and have more than 25 years of accumulated tips, tricks, and techniques I would love to share with you! (Did you know one of the best ways to sharpen an image doesn't use any sharpen filters?)

I started using CSS in 1999 when it was up-and-coming and not nearly used universally. CSS becomes much easier to master when you understand the "box model" and how the 'C' portion of the name 'CSS' (Cascading) works. Some of the trickier aspects, like floats and positioning and more, only seem difficult because the concept of exactly what they're trying to do isn't understood. I can help you to understand the concepts, and once you do you will have no problem deploying CSS that does precisely what you want it to do.
