I was an Adobe Certified Instructor in 7 programs from 2010 until the program was retired in 2023. I sat Adobe issued exams for multiple versions of Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Lightroom and Muse.

As an Adobe trainer I have worked for multiple companies, as both an employee and as a contractor, in multiple states across Australia.

Adobe Community Expert

I am quite active on the Adobe forums, along with their Discord servers, helping people with technical and creative issues. In recognition of this work, in 2019 I was invited to join the official Adobe Community Expert program.

Photography Certification

I hold a Diploma of Photography from Southbank TAFE, Brisbane, Australia. This was a two year, full-time course, which included digital photography, film photography, darkroom processing, studio lighting and shooting on location.

I have shot professionally and worked as an assistant for multiple professional photographers. I have experience with a broad range of camera and lighting equipment and worked for several years in a photographic store.
