Let me tell you a bit about myself…

Originally born and bred a Tarheel (a proud native of North Carolina), I now live in San Francisco. In college I studied both commercial art and fine art. Like a lot of artists I wound up working in a restaurant for many years. After rising to a management position, where I dealt with a lot more stress for a lot less money, I knew it was time to go back to school. In 1992 I enrolled in the computer graphics program at San Francisco City College. I found computers very difficult to learn at first. It really wasn't until I got my own computer at home (a Macintosh) and could do the same things over and over again that I really started to learn.

 

I never imagined I would one day be an instructor after my initial difficulty learning computer applications and concepts. After a couple of years of developing my skills. I realized that my liability could now be my asset. In other words my inability to learn computers made it relatively easy for me to explain and instruct in simple and plain language.

Besides spending a lot of time in front of the computer I also enjoy painting and drawing in traditional media, camping, biking, skiing, sailing and city life.

 

Thanks for your interest.
