I help people figure things. I run a podcast called Mike Murphy Unplugged, where I help people learn how to create online content, launch a podcast and all of the design and business aspects of running an online business. I am an advanced Photoshop and Adobe CC user and have spent the last 9 years managing a photography studio and serving as the head designer, retoucher and tech support. Like most one man bands, I wear many hats and I love to share my knowledge.
