ABOUT ME:
I am a graphic designer and creative artist with a strong interest in Design, Technology, Art, Education, Writing, and Career Development. I enjoy discovering how things work and are inter-connected, and finding ways to explain, relate, and simplify complex topics.

My teaching originates from my experience working professionally as a graphic designer, art director, production manager, photo-editing artist, and illustrator for regional, national, and international clients including three Fortune-50 tech companies. I work in high-end commercial image-editing, and publishing for print and web (advertising, interactive presentations, websites, catalogs, magazines, books).
