My two passions, photography and teaching, led me to my first career in commercial photography. With the release of Photoshop 2.5, I became involved in the world of digital imaging, and soon began designing for the web in addition to taking photographs.

While working in a commercial photo studio, I was approached by my former photography instructor to speak to the teacher's students. Over time, these guest speaker spots turned into an offer for a part time teaching position at Centennial College. I started teaching a single course to journalism students and over the years, took on more photojournalism classes, new media and advertising courses.

A former college professor of 21 years, I've taught imaging, web design, and photography at Centennial College, and web design at Humber College in Toronto, Ontario until I joined Adobe in May of 2011. I've has spoken at a
variety of technology conferences, including D2WC and Adobe MAX, as recently as 2016. Read Less

Photography has been a part of my life for more than 30 years. It's a refuge for me, a way to create and express myself and something I just plain enjoy doing.

I've gone from my simple Practika 35mm camera (with no light meter!), to Nikon film, 120mm and 4x5 view cameras, and now - of course - digital. Heck, I even use my smartphone more than I ever thought if I need to get a grab shot.

Photoshop, Lightroom, Muse and Dreamweaver have been staple tools of my professional life as both a visual communicator and teacher.

Since joining Adobe in 2011, I've learned so much more about tools I never thought of using, like InDesign for tablet publishing and Acrobat Pro for creating forms, portfolios and the like.

But something else has happened along the way; my personal brand has grown, expanded beyond what I ever thought possible. And this is in part due to how I utilize Behance. Yes, I post many images on Behance, but I don't limit myself to just posting good photos; I often tell stories, share my experiences around what I photographed. Along with this, I now use Behance as a platform for my tutorials. Read Less
