I’m a private tutor located in Austin, Texas. For the past 6 years, I’ve been teaching one on one private Photoshop, Design and Web lessons. I have on occasion prepared presentations and taught classes to professionals groups. Recently, I gave a one-hour interactive lecture to the Natural Science Council at the University of Texas (UT). As a tutor, teacher and lecturer, I gain the most satisfaction from sharing my passion about design and technology, but also from seeing my students grow and blossom into fully independent and skilled creators themselves. Patience and experience as my most prized tools.
Discounts are usually not my thing. I believe in charging and paying the fair price for creative services. That being said, I’m making one exception this summer: If you are a new business or enterprise in need of a logo, business card and website design, this offer is for YOU!
For a limited time, for only $1500, you can get a high quality logo designed, a brand new splendid professional mobile-friendly WordPress website, and a matching business card design.

Around since 2009 and causing much transformation in the finance industry, blockchain technology and its progeny bitcoin are booming. Renowned celebrities such as Richard Branson, the Winklevoss twins, Ashton Kutcher, Mike Tyson, and company Overstock.com are all Bitcoin investors, believing in its potential and its future as a transformer of global payment methods. For the ones who haven’t been keeping up with the modern times, bitcoin is decentralized virtual currency. Needing no central repository and having no single administrator, it uses a technology called the blockchain to process all transactions swiftly and publicly. In other words, it’s a new and efficient method of conducting business internationally.
So, it’s new and it’s big. But how can it actually benefit you as a creative business?
Modern Thrive, a community developed by the founders of Mentor Mentors and designed to educate, support and offer free resources to creative professionals, hosts several amazing workshops this summer. One of them is Building a Freelance Illustration Business, taught by amazing well-established illustrator Salli S. Swindell from Studio SSS, and co-founder of They Draw & Cook and They Draw & Travel (I had the chance to video-chat with Salli and she’s a peach).
