I have been teaching adults since I was barely an adult myself. I started teaching ballroom dancing when I was 20 yrs old and still in college. After graduating college I went on to make video games. It was fun, but at the time, the web had more to offer. I switched careers to become a web designer and owned a web design company for 10 years. I took a break from the business world to start up a fun digital scrapbooking company and feed my passion for Photoshop. A move across the country forced me to sell the scrapbooking business and seek out a new career.
I taught at various colleges throughout the my career and my passion for teaching landed me with a new focus and a new title of Adobe Certified Instructor. Teaching full time since 2009, I have traveled all over the country and taught hundreds of students. I contract with various training companies located all over the USA. I currently live in Colorado, about 15 miles south of Denver.
My passion is teaching one on one online and in person. I make sure that you, my students are learning relative, current technologies that apply to your job to make you faster and more efficient in your workflow.
I am currently a user group manager for the Denver Adobe Creative Cloud User Group. We meet in Denver every other month. All are welcome to join us, our meetings and membership are always free.
I am an Adobe Community Professional. There are about 300 of us around the world who are part of the ACP community. We contribute blog posts, training videos, speak and present at events and answers questions in the Adobe User Forums.
I write online training courses and currentlyam an author for Pluralsight.
In my spare time, I like to make artist trading cards. I trade them with people all over the world. I love everything Disney and try to get to the parks as often as I can. I'm always ready to jump on a plane to teach in Orlando or Anaheim!
