Hello, everyone. Welcome to the class. You may call me Caleb; I'm completing a terminal degree in Graphic Design. I consider myself a designer now. I've been a software developer and computer engineer for almost 20 years. I am completing my thesis, now.

I have worked with Adobe Illustrator and vector illustration, in general, for almost twenty years.
I own and operate four domains. I created and implemented designs for each of them. I have created and worked on some you may even have seen, if you ever get car service done, nationwide. I'm fluent and familiar with Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Illustrator, XD, Axure, Invision, Pencil, Sketch, and a few others.
I started in 1998 writing data layer programs for Flash apps. I am an expert in database connection and REST APIs with PHP. If you need help understanding the back end of Magento, CakePHP, Laravel, Wordpress, or OOP in PHP, I can show you the way.
I graduated in 2001. I accomplished proficiency in the field related to understanding of digital timing, control interfaces, FPGA programming, state machines, and I also designed a 64-bit microprocessor.
I spent 3 years in academia, pursuing a Graphic Design master's degree. I have in-depth understanding of the principles of design and the concept/execution behind how graphic design solves visual problems. I can instruct you and help with your learning objectives in all aspects of graphical design, web design, and the attention to detail needed to address proofreading and effective copywriting.
