I love seeing students succeed in their designs, photos, productions, and careers!

Do you want to learn become a better designer or communicator? Do you want to learn industry-standard editing and effects in Photoshop? Do you want to create logos for your brand or for clients? Do you want to learn new skills that are in demand in the new digital economy?

Welcome! I'm passionate about communication, writing, and design education, and I'm currently a full-time professor of graphic design and digital journalism at Southeastern University. I've taught classes on design, photography, and writing for the past ten years. My university students have become full-time, award-winning photographers, web designers, creative specialists, reporters, and layout designers. And now, you can learn from me as well!

Get started by enrolling in my courses, learning new skills and knowledge, and asking me questions in the discussion boards.

About the instructor:

By combining my professional in-the-field experience (both full-time and freelance), formal education, and experience teaching these topics, I've been able to produce top-notch courses that maximize learning and enable students to become better graphic designers, logo designers, photo editors, and writers.

Professional Experience:

I've worked as Webmaster and Advertising Designer at a regional newspaper (The News Chief), Internet Development Director at an award-winning advertising design firm, Technology Librarian at a city library system, and Managing Editor at two international graphic design magazines at Kelby Media Group. I've also written for publications and designed web sites and other promotional work for clients on an on-going basis for the past 20 years.


Besides relevant marketplace experience, I also have a B.A. in Communication from Southeastern University, an M.A. in Journalism and Media Studies from the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg, and a Ph.D. in Communication from Regent University. My Ph.D. dissertation focuses on the mythic branding of Apple's Macintosh/Mac in their primary commercial campaigns (1984, Think Different, Switch/Real People, and Get a Mac).


My combination of professional real world experience, formal education, and experience in teaching have all enabled me to produce quality courses that help students become better graphic designers, photo editors, writers, and illustrators.

I'm the founder of Good Creative Academy, the premiere online school for learning and creating. If you're looking to learn more about graphic design, writing, and new media entrepreneurship, you have arrived at the right place!

Fun tech-related facts about me:

I taught myself QBasic when I was 13, and later used that programming language to write a program that simulated the DOS prompt, to fool my high school graphic design teacher into thinking the computers had been hacked.

I used web banner advertising on my web sites in high school and during my freshman year of college, which brought in about $750 a month in income.
