Me and my husband like to travel the world. Never go without a photo and video camera. There is where Premiere Pro comes in. Love editing. Its a hobby that has gone way out of hand.
About me: Since finishing art school in 2009, I have had the opportunity to work with food and entertainment, creating posters, dvd covers, html email blasts and web graphics for use in video editorial. Most of my design experience has come from working in the medical field, creating educational, sales and marketing materials.My digital illustration section showcases my personality and my design style. I enjoy working with colors, textures and type to create interesting compositions. The inspiration for my personal work comes for pulp art from publications like “Amazing Stories” and vintage advertising. I am a big fan of comic book art and I like all things robots and science fiction. The digital publishing portion of my portfolio has some great samples of HTML5 magazines created using Adobe InDesign CC with HTML5 overlaying elements. I spent 80 plus hours a year training on LYNDA.COM. I have been to the adobe training center and received professional training in Adobe Indesign, Photoshop and Dreamweaver.

About me: I've lived in England, in Texas, in Missouri, near New York City, and near Nashville, TN - so I've been around. I've been working with Adobe software since 2001. I learned a lot of what I know from helpful people on forums, so I decided to give back to the community by helping out in the forums too!
Hobbies/interests: I enjoy helping out at my local church, with the Gay Christian Network, and in online forums. When I'm not doing that, I like to read. When I'm not doing that, I like to be outside. Cooking with fresh herbs from the garden is one of my favorite things!
Fun Fact: If I get irritated, sometimes an English accent pops out. Two of the residents of my house are retired racing greyhounds ( both rescued from an all-to-common post career killing). I have Mac OSX, Windows, and Linux machines at home.
About me: I was originally trained as a telecommunications technician in the Royal Air Force. By the time I left I already owned an Apple II+, and on leaving I switched over to fixing computer terminals. I had a company with friends in the 1980s (Greengate Productions) that made Apple II based sound samplers and keyboards. Eventually, that died horribly! I then went to work for Apple Computer UK, in technical support. As 'multimedia' happened I was designated to be the multimedia specialist. Through that I became friends with the founders of The Voyager Company (the most prominent CD-ROM publisher of that era). In 1992 I moved to the US to work for Voyager, as a programmer of CD-ROMs. After six years with Voyager I joined Funny Garbage, and I'm still with them now, 19 years later! Kinda... Mid-2014 Funny Garbage joined Moving Interactive, and in January 2016 the combined company was renamed as FROM, the Digital Transformation Agency. My development tools have changed over the years, starting with HyperCard in 1987, then Director in 1995, and Flash Professional (now Adobe Animate) since 2000.
Hobbies/Interests: I like movies, mostly watching on my 3D TV at home! I'm into astronomy, especially trying to photograph things in the murky skies of NYC. I also juggle.
Fun Fact: I was the first person on earth to use Mac OS 7 full time, even the System 7 team hadn't started to use it full time! In 1997 I won a Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh at the WWDC. I still have it.
About me: I am an active part of the Adobe Dreamweaver team based out of Bangalore, India. Prior to that, I was part of the India Globalization Team working out of the Noida Campus. In my 4 years stint at Adobe, I have worked on multiple products including Presenter, Framemaker and Adobe Digital Editions (ADE). I have expertise in technologies like C#, Java and Web development. I hail from Kanpur, India and have a Bachelors in Information Technology. Apart from work I like to play Badminton and Carrom. I also go back from time to time to painting, reading novels or going on treks. Adobe is my first company after college and I have been loving working here each day. There are many things that Adobe has helped transform in my personality for which I am so thankful of. Contribution to Adobe Community Forums is one of those things, it has been a great experience responding to customer queries and complaints. No videos can help you better understand the product than reading forum posts! There have been cases when I have felt let down by some comments but this is part and parcel of the experience. This is the only way you can actually connect to what customer wants and align your perspective of the delivered features with the same.
Fun Fact: I tend to find excitement in everything and anything I do. I am a keen observer but tend to cast out my opinions only with my close ones. I love bikes! I also try and keep myself updated with whatever goes around, however tiny detail it might be- this also helps me frame and put my opinions in a better way.

I then worked for several years for Electronic Data Systems (EDS) as part of their Training and Education team and my passion for designing and developing online courses and performance support systems using Adobe products grew from there.
