Learning New Skills Should Be an Adventure!
And not an adventure like an “Oops, we just took a wrong turn down a dark alley and are now being taken to meet a ‘friend’ of the sketchy looking guy that just appeared, and what could possibly go wrong?” kind of adventure. But in a “I didn’t know my software could do that, and my mind is blown, and I’m so excited to put this all into practice on my next project!” kind of way.
That level of excitement is what I strive to bring to my training–whether in person or online–as well as through my writing. If you’re ready to dive into your creative software, or if you only want to dip your toe in to test the waters, I’d love to share my enthusiasm and passion with you.
As a speaker, trainer, and writer, I create content around software for creative professionals. I focus mainly on InDesign, Illustrator, and the mobile creativity apps from Adobe, as well as Apple Keynote and iBooks Author. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s chat about how we can work together!

“Erica really knows InDesign…”
Erica really knows InDesign through and through, and moves through the material methodically and authoritatively. Highly recommended! –Steve, Boulder, CO
Your level of knowledge is impressive, yet you make it very accessible. Thank you!
This class was like being in a candy store for me. So many great things. I loved it!
Erica was well-versed in the subject matter, approachable, and used relevant examples.
