Methodology

Even when I teach, I always put myself in the position of the student when it comes to approaching a daunting new piece of software or equipment, and the easiest way to get frustrated and disinterested as a new student by getting overloaded with information and theory right out the gate, and to have your hand held tightly through every step of the way.

I'm interested in getting the student into the software and getting comfortable with it as quickly as possible. What the student wants to do is make something, so I focus my training on allowing them to make the basics, then assigning clear but open-ended assignments that challenges them while still allowing for the student to express themself. While the learning process itself is very hands-on and in-the-thick-of-it, I try to stay fairly hands off and let the student explore while always being available to answer questions and explain tricky concepts in an easy to digest way.

I want the learning process to be fun and creative and to inspire new ideas with the wealth of interesting tools in any given workspace. Essentially, I want your first try at something like Photoshop to feel as intuitive and full of possibility as the thousanth time!

Background

I've been working professionally and voluntarily in graphic design and video production since I was 16 and haven't stopped since. I started learning with Adobe Premiere, Photoshop and Illustrator and later moved on to After Effects, DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut, Audition, and 3DS max to help complete everything from personal projects to branding and advertising to feature length films. I've learned through a healthy mix of highschool and college classes, online tutorials, tutoring and mostly just good old fashioned experimentation, and whenever I learn how to use a new tool or piece of software I make sure to understand the fundamentals I need to simply start creating things as quickly and as intuitively as possible, and then gradually explore the more complex systems from there, and I always try my best to translate that to my teaching.
